The Lathmer Estate will be reorganized in the coming years in a cooperation between 'Zozijn' (a psychiatric institution that helps children and adults with special limitations to help maximize self-development and management of their own lives) and the Municipality of Voorst. Old houses will be pulled down and replaced by new houses. There will also be villas constructed for private residence. This way the estate will be transformed from a closed institution to an open housing estate. This openness is a must according to the Ministery of VWS (Health, Welfare and Sport). A first partial project 'The Echo' has been completed recently.
