“Between Green Spaces and Mobility: exploring diverging perspectives on the admission of motorised traffic in the Bois de la Cambre”
End 2020, researchers from the VUB and ULB, in collaboration with the Brussels Studies Institute, have studied the different preferences and profiles of users regarding the admission of motorised traffic in the Bois de la Cambre.
Individual preferences in relation to different setups of the Bois de la Cambre were studied. The profiles of groups with different preferences in relation to their use of the park, their socio- demographic situation, the places where they live and work, their mobility practices and access to green spaces were further analysed.
Based on an online survey (n = 7252), the research indicates that respondents’ personal situation (age, parents with young children, place where they live/work, personal resources) is as an important predictor for one’s preference for the park’s setup and as such offers an adequate frame to understand the dispute on Bois de la Cambre.
