Meerle has a lot of advantages. It is a calm village with a protected village view and a lot of vibrant associations. However there were more than enough reasons to fundamentally think about the future of this village.

The city gouvernment committed itself setting up a participation process in order to devise a strategy for their village together with the residents of Meerle. The goal: a renewed and more attractive village center that ensures economic and socio-cultural reinforcement of the village.

‘Meerle, Ons Dorp’ is an initiative of the city of Hoogstraten, carried out in collaboration with ICN Development. The project will be developed in several phases.
