Het stedelijk-knooppuntenbeleid en het stedelijk vestigingsmilieu in Nederland
At the request of a parliamentary work group, Euricur has carried out a research into the issue to what extent the urban junctions policy of the Dutch government has contributed to an improvement of the location environment of cities in the Netherlands. The objective of this policy was to strengthen the location environment particularly towards the business-services sector in a number of strong economic urban regions. This goal seems to be realised. However, the improvements appear not to be restricted to the urban junctions. Various cities without the status of urban junction have showed a good economic performance too. There are no convincing indications that the location environment in the urban junctions has improved more than in cities without that status. The philosophy behind the policy was to realise a positive (investment) effect on market actors. The impression from this research is that the measures which have been taken explicitly within the urban junctions policy do not have a substantial influence on the spatial investment and/or location behaviour of market actors. To sum it up, the result (improvement of the urban location environment) is positive, but the policy output (results of the policy measures) is limited.
