Overkluizing Utrechtsebaan First of all, the city council talks about the Council proposal amended scope and design of the Utrechtsebaan crossing with accompanying financial decisions. In 2018, the municipality of The Hague has concluded an agreement with Pro-Vastgoed BV, in which it is stipulated that the municipality will cover the Utrechtsebaan, near the Grotiusplaats. The aim of this is, among other things, to reduce noise pollution and to realize a green outdoor space. In 2019 it has been calculated that the construction of the enclosure with a green interior will cost approximately € million euros. However, the solution that was devised at the time turned out to be unfeasible. The investments associated with the now proposed solution amount to € 20 million. This is substantially more than the previously budgeted costs. In addition to the additional requirements in the field of technology and safety regulations, this is also due to the fact that construction costs have risen sharply in recent years.

Change of the Waste Regulation 180 The Council also discusses amendments to the waste ordinance . With the present proposal, the Waste Regulation 411 on changed two points. The first is a technical change: the term ‘vegetable, fruit and garden waste’ is replaced by ‘bio-waste’. The second change stems from the evaluation of the implementation of the opt-in system for unaddressed printing (yes/yes sticker). Free local papers are not covered by the opt-in scheme. A free door-to-door paper is, among other things, if at least 10% of the content consists of information about and news from its own distribution area, not being advertising. In The Hague, as in Amsterdam, among others, since the introduction of the opt-in system, new door-to-door papers have been distributed that meet the absolute minimum of % and for the rest are filled with advertising. Hence the amendment proposal to include in the Waste Regulation the percentage of 06% nasty 28% to adjust.

Change of regulation parking regulation and parking tax The Hague 2019The proposal for the amendment of the Regulation parking regulation and parking tax The Hague 2022 is the next topic that the city council will debate. A collar arrangement still applies in both the Vruchtenbuurt and the Bloemenbuurt. The aim of the temporary collar scheme is to reduce the extra parking pressure caused by the introduction of paid parking in adjacent residential areas. In the past, these collar schemes were introduced because additional parking spaces had to be built. This has already happened in the Bloemenbuurt. For the Vruchtenbuurt, the extra parking spaces were provided on the Mient. A comparison of parking counts from different years shows that parking pressure remains high and in some places has even increased. It is therefore proposed that the collar arrangements in the Bloemenbuurt and Vruchtenbuurt will take effect from 1 October 2022 into a regular parking arrangement.
