INTERVENTION AREA: Nantes Nord

ZONE D'INTERVENTION : Nantes Nord

The study area selected for Urbinat focuses on “Nantes Nord”, a district situated to the north of the Nantes municipality. It is particularly heterogeneous in its socio-demographic characteristics and in the representation of different ways of “living”. It comprises several priority districts, residential districts that are gentrifying over time of population renewal, a campus.

Nantes Nord is the district with the highest concentration of social housing with 37% of tenants in social housing. Three of its nine micro district, concentrate socio-economic, security, and health challenges challenge. It is a district characterised by a high poverty rate, high unemployment,  single-parent family, and health issues. Inhabitants also share their increasing sense of insecurity. As for several multi-ethnic districts in France, Nantes has been the theatre of urban violence that has been covered by the press. The district is also subject to drug dealing.

But…With nearly 62 mÂČ of green space per inhabitant, the district Nantes Nord is often presented as the greenest district of the City of Nantes. There are many spaces for walking, conviviality spaces which benefits to the inhabitants: playgrounds, wading pools, 670community gardens, squares of proximity are scattered on the whole of the territory. The presence of the Erdre river as well as the Cens river, strengthen the environmental quality of the district. Nevertheless, this green wealth is not always known or/and appropriated by the citizens.

La zone d’Ă©tude sĂ©lectionnĂ©e pour Urbinat se concentre sur “Nantes Nord”, un quartier situĂ© au nord de la municipalitĂ© de Nantes. Il est particuliĂšrement hĂ©tĂ©rogĂšne dans ses caractĂ©ristiques sociodĂ©mographiques et dans la reprĂ©sentation des diffĂ©rents modes de “vie”. Il comprend plusieurs quartiers prioritaires, des quartiers rĂ©sidentiels qui se gentrifient au fil du renouvellement de la population, un campus.

Nantes Nord est le quartier qui prĂ©sente la plus forte concentration de logements sociaux avec 37% de locataires dans les logements sociaux. Trois de ses neuf microquartiers, concentrent des enjeux socio-Ă©conomiques, sĂ©curitaires et sanitaires. C’est un quartier caractĂ©risĂ© par un taux de pauvretĂ© Ă©levĂ©, un chĂŽmage important, des familles monoparentales et des problĂšmes de santĂ©. Les habitants partagent Ă©galement leur sentiment croissant d’insĂ©curitĂ©. Comme plusieurs quartiers multiethniques en France, Nantes a Ă©tĂ© le thĂ©Ăątre de violences urbaines qui ont Ă©tĂ© couvertes par la presse. Le quartier est Ă©galement sujet au trafic de drogue.

Mais…Avec prĂšs de 62 mÂČ d’espaces verts par habitant, le quartier Nantes Nord est souvent prĂ©sentĂ© comme le quartier le plus vert de la ville de Nantes. Les espaces de promenade sont nombreux, des espaces de convivialitĂ© qui profitent aux habitants : aires de jeux, pataugeoires, 670 jardins collectifs, places de proximitĂ© sont dissĂ©minĂ©s sur l’ensemble du territoire. La prĂ©sence de l’Erdre ainsi que de la Cens, renforce la qualitĂ© environnementale du quartier. NĂ©anmoins, cette richesse verte n’est pas toujours connue et/ou appropriĂ©e par les citoyens.
