Opening of a new site at Lens

19 November 2021

ECT opens a new site at Lens (62, Pas de Calais), on the avenue Alfred Van Pelt.

The purpose of this development is to transform a former industrial site into an urban forest. This rehabilitation project is part of a local environmental dynamic:

  • To create extensive green spaces by planting 8,000 trees,
  • To factor biodiversity into the project,
  • To reduce the nuisance impact of the A21 Lens-Valenciennes highway

This new natural space will be developed by upcycling inert soil excavated from local sites of the construction & public works sector. It is expected that soil will be brought into the site over a 3-month period.

For all access to the Lens site, prior authorisation must be obtained from ECT’s Bookings department.
