Utrechtsebaan crossing First of all, the city council will discuss the council proposal amended scope and design for the Utrechtsebaan crossing with accompanying financial decisions. In 2017, 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 € 000 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 € 15 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. Application for an environmental permit The Grace Then the council will discuss the proposal for the declaration of no objections (Wabo) with regard to the application for an environmental permit for the construction of two residential towers with spaces for commercial facilities (The Grace) at the location of the Rijswijkseweg office building to be demolished to 86A. In 2021 an environmental permit has been requested for the construction of 2 residential towers, called The Grace, on the site of the Rijswijkseweg office building to be demolished. to 29A. The two residential towers have a height of approximately 60 and 180 meters and contain 1.95 rental properties, of which 30% social rental housing and 15% medium-priced rental properties. Within the project are also approximately 2. m² supporting facilities included that are for all residents, independent of the segment or target group, are freely accessible. These facilities are located in the plinth of the building and consist of light catering, services and other commercial facilities, which are connected by an atrium. The building plan was reported to the Spatial Planning Committee on 6 January 2019. Given the nature of the plan, a specific declaration of no objections is required for this construction plan. In this meeting, the city council discusses the final Declaration of no objections, and a decision is made on this after the discussion. Confidentiality of committee letters Dreven-Gaarden-Zichten The city council continues the meeting with a debate on the proposal regarding Ratification confidentiality of Dreven-Gaarden-Zichten committee letters. The municipal council has received two letters from the council about the land development and cooperation agreement Dreven-Gaarden-Zichten under confidentiality. This secrecy was ratified in the city council meeting of February 9 2021. In addition, the municipal council has asked for additional substantiation for the term in which the secrecy expires. That will be discussed today. The Commission’s proposal is not to use an expiration date (that is, the date on which the secrecy is lifted) but instead opt for an evaluation date. This means that on this date it will be reconsidered whether secrecy is still necessary. As a result, the duration of the secrecy on which the council takes a decision in this meeting will be shortened considerably. Development of youth and family help The further development of youth and family help is the next item on the agenda. On 25 November the municipal council discussed and adopted the Hague Future Perspective for Youth and Family Help. Five motions were also passed. The Commission has used the past months to elaborate these motions and to translate the principles of the Future Perspective into a concrete outline plan. On the basis of this plan, the Municipality of The Hague wants to build an accessible, effective and affordable youth system in dialogue with its partners in the city. In this meeting, the city council takes a final go or no-go decision for this further development of youth and family help in The Hague. Amendment to the Waste Regulation 180 The Council also discusses amendments to the waste ordinance 180. With the present proposal, the Waste Regulation 2017 on two points altered. 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 12% of content is information about and news from its own distribution area, not being advertising. In The Hague, just as in Amsterdam, among other places, 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. Amendment parking regulation and parking tax The Hague The proposal for the modification of the regulation parking regulation and parking tax The Hague 2021 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 2021 into a regular parking arrangement. Initiative proposal The Zuiderpark as a city park in The Hague for all residents With this initiative proposal Zuiderpark Hart voor Den Haag presents fourteen proposals for a better, safer, cleaner and more beautiful Zuiderpark.
Initiative proposal Weather fossil advertising from public space Party for the Animals has submitted a initiative proposal that the city council is discussing. With this proposal, the submitters want to ban fossil advertising from the streets of The Hague, with the ultimate goal that residents and visitors of The Hague will purchase less fossil products and realize that the fossil industry still plays a major role in exacerbating climate change. Sale Titan and Bet Reserve In 2018 the city council has decided to develop De Titaan in the Binckhaven on Saturnusstraat 60. The council will debate the proposal regarding the sale and use of reserve. The combination of the creative activity present in the Binckhaven and the industrial appearance of the area make this an ideal business climate for new creative and innovative activity. In March 2022 the city council has been informed about the intention of the council to sell the Titan in the Binckhorst by means of a qualitative tender. The tender procedure has now been completed, whereby the Unknown Group, in the opinion of an independent committee, has achieved the maximum score.Revolution Initiative proposal Parking garage Bezuidenhout This proposal proposes a pilot parking garage in the Bezuidenhout district as a first step towards the much more frequent and regular development of ‘neighborhood parking garages’. This proposal was discussed in the municipal council meeting of June 9 2021. During the vote, the votes were tied. That is why it will be voted on again in this council meeting.
