27.5.2016 | Lemvig is to be protected against high tide and flooding in the eastern area of its harbour. A new feasibility study by C.F. Møller Landscape indicates how the harbour front could be made recreational, innovatively linking the different areas close to the harbour.

 

Lemvig Municipality and Realdania initiated the feasibility studies that C.F. Møller Landscape and COWI have now completed in 2015.

The result is a catalogue of ideas indicating how the area adjacent to Lemvig Bedding can be made more recreational, with leisure activities in a maritime setting. A promenade along the water’s edge to improve the link to the eastern harbour is also to be included, featuring a commercial area and skate park.

Intended to make engineering problems attractive
The feasibility study explored various scenarios in depth for how the engineering problems inherent in protecting the harbour against high tides and climate change can contribute to a thriving urban community on the harbour front. Part of the project consists of creating functional and attractive footpaths around the harbour.

“The feasibility study has provided the data we need to build facilities close to the centre of town that are closely linked to the water. We know that both the local authority and population want to see this become a reality for the benefit of the town,” says Lasse Palm, Department Manager at C.F. Møller Landscape, and who lead the feasibility study.

“The engineering criteria are in place that will ensure that the recreational areas will have a double function - protecting the town against future rises in sea level. The feasibility study looked closely at finding the urban solutions in which an innovative approach to high tide protection could create a new relationship between town and waterfront, whilst having multifunctional and recreational value. It comes down to thinking in terms of added value for the town, turning problems into bonuses, and making the climate investments necessary into synergistic solutions in which 2 + 2 = 5,” explains Palm.

Moving closer to the water
C.F. Møller studied two possible scenarios for locating climate protection installations. The first looked at a location close to the town whilst the other projected the actual defences and promenade in a more advanced position.

“There are a number of benefits to a more advanced location for the installations. One is that it gives us the chance to think in terms of climate protection as an urban element, in which access to the water is a key element,” says Palm.

“Our recommendation means that climate protection of Lemvig Bedding and the eastern harbour can be used as a lever for a future sustainable and robust development of the project areas, with focus on an attractive urban area with a maritime theme, recreational activities and being able to retain the vital social gathering places that support the maritime life of Lemvig’s harbour,” he adds.

The feasibility study identified problems, consequences and possible solutions at a general level, and is the first step towards an attractive area fully protected against climate change. The study report will be used for an architectural competition to define specific solutions for the harbour.

C.F. Møller Landscape has already worked on climate protection projects in several other Danish towns in 2016, including the ambitious project in Randers ‘Byen til Vandet’, looking at ways of bringing the town closer to the water. C.F. Møller Landscape previously undertook the successful transformation of Aalborg harbour front, and produced the master plans for several large harbours including Aarhus and Haderslev. The studio is currently working in Copenhagen on a new ‘aqua-educational landscape’ linked to the new Copenhagen International School.
