During the first phase of developing the Hercogiste project, experts from Happold Consulting conducted all-encompassing analysis so as to evaluate the economic, territorial, environmental, social and other aspects of the project. The experts interviewed more than 40 experts from various sectors in Latvia. They have drafted proposals on the development of the eco project on the basis of local circumstances, analysis of the relevant data, and the expertise of the consultants themselves. The experts have presented a vision about economic development at this location and the development of the local social environment. They have also presented early suggestions on the infrastructure of the project. All of the proposals refer to the maximum use of the region’s advantages, circumstances and factors. Environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions will be put to use.
