Abstract

In the Netherlands, interest in utilization of underground space has been increasing over the past decade. To examine the potential for subsurface space use, a national "Strategic Study on the Utilization of Underground Space" was carried out by the Centre for Underground Construction (Centrum Ondergronds Bouwen, COB) and Delft University of Technology (TUD), on the initiative of the National Physical Planning Service (Rijksplanologische Dienst, RPD) of the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment. The paper describes the objectives of the study, the characteristics of underground space use in the Netherlands, positive and negative influences on the potential use of such space, and conclusions of the Strategic Study, including likely prospective applications of subsurface space in the Netherlands.
