The Coastal Division, the city of Nieuwpoort and the province of West Flanders on 17 October 2011 all signed a cooperation agreement for the creation of the project ‘Nieuwpoort Right Bank’. This project concerns the construction of a new side dock for active and recreational sailing with some 600 additional berths, a housing project with permanent homes, supporting tourist accommodation, trade and business activities, tourist facilities, offices and parking facilities. Additionally, a bridge link and a green promenade for pedestrians and cyclists will be put in place coming from the city of Nieuwpoort and stretching along the project area.
