How Must Metabolism and Inclusivity Be Developed and Connected?
Niort is included in the perimeter of the Marais Poitevin Regional Nature Park. The City and the Conurbation want to implement a landscape and ecological transition strategy on the scale of the heart of the conurbation. It is a question of revitalizing a ring of abandoned spaces in the first periphery of the center of Niort, by taking care of the interfaces with the neighboring municipalities to organise the transition from urban to rural, from a dense city to the open spaces of the marsh and countryside.
