What or where is Almere?  Almere is a city in the Netherlands developed as a New Town in the same period as Milton Keynes in the UK although to a different urban design philosophy.  More recently Almere has hosted one of the largest custom build housing sites in the world at Almere Port.  Almere Consulting claim no credit for the built environment of Almere, Netherlands.  We do however look to the new towns and suburbs constructed in the Netherlands in this period and believe that together with the UK’s history of Garden City development they provide part of the solution for delivering housing today.
