Spacious country living in Westergouwe

  • update:    
  • Housing
The new housing development of Westergouwe is being realised to the west of Gouda. This project is undertaken by the Municipality of Gouda and VOF Westergouwe (which combines the property companies VolkerWessels Vastgoed and Heijmans Vastgoed).




The Westergouwe Project Office was established specially for the purposes of this collaboration. Each party within the VOF develops and constructs its own residential properties. All joint activities, such as the construction of roads, water and greenery, are carried out by the Westergouwe Project Office.

The Westergouwe project was launched in 2013 and is expected to be completed around 2035. A total of some 4,000 homes in every price category will be built and delivered in phases. The first homes were completed in 2016.

Westergouwe will be a sustainable neighbourhood, which will be reflected not only in the houses being built (including solar-powered boilers and potentially solar panels or small thermal systems) but also in the public spaces: the total picture of roads, green areas and water in the neighbourhood. The developers are investing heavily in a robust and sustainable water system as well as ensuring a stable substrate. Wherever possible, the project will be aligned to current market demand and make use of the latest technological developments.

BNG Bank provided the EUR 13 million in funding (with a term until 21 December 2028), guaranteed by the Municipality of Gouda.
