Strategy and spatial planning

Strategie en ruimte

Technical expertise and the political acumen and skills to get solutions in place. That's what we at Goudappel stand for. We work across all levels of the policy hierarchy - from defining political goals down to detailed designs at street level, including the attendant complex policy and decision-making process. We inspire and enable, driven by the city or region that you want to be.

An integrated approach 

We look at mobility issues from an integrated perspective, going beyond the traditional thinking on traffic and transport. Bringing this approach into our work has many benefits. One is that we capture multiple policy areas in our research and deliver solutions that fit the interests of all parties involved. In addition to accessibility, we also specifically address other societal challenges, such as sustainability, health and safety, social inclusiveness, and the economic vibrancy of cities and regions. 

Strategies and forward-looking solutions 

In a society that is forever changing, it's vital that strategies are shaped with a view to the future. In our advice we look closely at the changes that are taking place and the uncertainties stemming from them. We explore ways to respond to developments, having regard to the wishes and interests of all stakeholders. We also keep close tabs on technical and societal trends. Where necessary, we use data, behavioural studies and model scenarios to support our advice. 

Our way of working 

We see your mobility goals as a joint creative effort to find solutions that contribute to achieving wider societal objectives. The political context is often complex, involving many stakeholders. Thanks to the breadth of our organisation, we boast in-house specialist mobility expertise and process skills. This blend of capabilities enables us to gain innovative and engaging insights so as to provide forward-looking action perspectives. We know what's feasible and devise unusual solutions when the situation requires it. And, at least as importantly, we'll take you along with us on our journey from start to finish. 

Our contribution to your mobility goals may vary from an open brainstorming session to providing intensive technical and process-related guidance during your decision-making process. From classic advice based on a fresh perspective to joint interactive work sessions and related communication strategies – resulting in co-created outcomes. 

The deliverables 

At the end of the journey, you can expect us to deliver a plan that will support you further with the process. The plan will set out clear recommendations and practical next steps for the short and long term. The standard we set ourselves is to produce a high-quality technical result that stakeholders can relate to. An engaging, inspiring, and accessible product for a wide audience.
