Commissioned by

The four municipalities on the Dutch island of Goeree-Overflakkee, who prepared a municipal fusion.


Martin Boisen was commissioned in 2012, while he was the Director of City Result.

The Context

The municipalities of Goedereede, Middelharnis, Dirksland and Oost-flakkee where set to merge into one new municipality. To this end, four different municipal organisations had to merge their policies and strategically decide with paths to choose.

Our Contribution

On the domains of inhabitants, businesses and tourists, we’ve conducted an exploratory study on strategies on how to proceed with policies and priorities from a market-led perspective. The result was a concise report who covered those three market segments and related policy areas.
