THE BLUE-GREEN NEIGHBOURHOODS
The RESILIO roofs are realized on social housing in five Amsterdam neighbourhoods: Kattenburg, Oosterparkbuurt, Indische Buurt, Slotermeer and Rivierenbuurt. These neighbourhoods have been selected because they have a high risk of flooding and damage during heavy rainfall (see the map by Rainproof). Moreover, the roofs of the selected buildings are in need of replacement, a good moment to implement sustainable solutions.
Private homeowners, VvE’s, entrepreneurs and houseboat owners can also have their own smart blue-green roof installed. A subsidy is available from the municipality of Amsterdam, provided that it will be used for roof areas of at least 200m2. You can request the subsidy until the 1st of August 2021.
