Prinsevinkenpark – summary of LTO information evening

Twenty-five attended the information meeting on 14 April 2010. They included local residents and representatives of the A&W residents Association. Those attending were informed that they had until 6 May to lodge any objections to the plans being presented.

Conform the wishes of the Urban Development and Monuments departments and the Building Inspectorate a number of changes had been made to the design of the new building so that it tones in better with the architectural style of the rest of the buildings in Archipel.

Because of the concerns of Prinsevinkenpark residents about damage that might be caused to their properties due to vibrations during the construction work, the developer will investigate whether the current basement structure can be maintained and built on to limit the need for the construction of new foundations. Locals will also be kept informed about construction activities and site traffic in order to keep nuisance to a minimum.
