A constantly transitioning city

A constantly transitioning city

Accommodating housing and economic activities, fighting energy poverty and global warming, limiting urban sprawl, cleaning up the soil, promoting sustainable transportation and limiting disconnected neighbourhoods while preserving green and blue breathing spaces to provide a pleasant living environment in the heart of the city –these are issues the city is constantly attempting to address.

Lille is developing an inclusive vision of the city-one of the pillars of sustainable development, to provide access to affordable housing within the city rather than in the outskirts. This vision is made possible by rehabilitating old neighbourhoods or transforming its many industrial wastelands. 15,685 dwellings were built (or are currently under construction) between 2008 and 2018. It is also reflected in environmental health, and urban projects are carefully integrating issues related to carbon, biodiversity, noise reduction and improved air quality.

 Competing for the European Green Capital Award 2021, the city of Lille promotes:

1. A green and resilient city

2. A circular and inclusive city

3. A calm and breathable city
