Fewer and fewer people are unable to participate sufficiently in urban life. They can no longer find or pay for a home and many amenities in the city are inaccessible to them. Furthermore, fewer people have transport to reach work or medical facilities. This is the conclusion reached by the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli) in its advisory report ‘Access to the city’ that was presented on 1 October 2020 to the Dutch ministers of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, and Infrastructure and Water Management. The Council believes that access to Dutch cities for all citizens should be better guaranteed.
