The operation of a port and industrial area will undoubtedly result in nuisance for its environs. It therefore makes sense to assume that the expansion of this area, the construction of Maasvlakte 2, will lead to more nuisance: congestion (traffic), noise, air pollution (particulate matter/smell) and light.
Various studies show that residents of the area surrounding the port and Maasvlakte 2 are apprehensive about an increase in this nuisance - which only stands to reason. The artists have been asked to make a careful study of these themes and how they are experienced and to present alternative ideas on how to deal with these issues in relation to public opinion.
