Concerted Development Zone procedure CDZ (Concerted Planning Zone)

Positive comments about the tool
One of its strengths is its application for sewage management. The CDZ procedure is becoming nowadays an interesting tool for the realisation of an public development operation. It is a procedure which can help to integrate rainfall sewage constraints. A lot of districts defined as CDZ are the place for experimenting “best management practices” (or non-structural facilities) for storm water management. The implementation of a CDZ has a significant economic impact on on buildings and public works activities. Indeed, 1 euros invested by public sector on a urban operation where a CDZ procedure is implemented generates 15 euros of private investments for construction.

This tool helps to make an balance between constructed and non-constructed area in a neighbourhood.
