Korte Verspronckweg 7-9
A development framework for the former school site at Korte Verspronckweg 7-9 has been drawn up but not yet confirmed. Development of the area will see it transformed from an educational site into a residential area. The development framework creates the preconditions to build a small, high-quality and relaxed residential environment at this location. This is based on the complete demolition of the existing buildings. At present, parts of the area are leased on a five-year contract. Part of the school building is being used as an outbuilding by a primary school. At this time, it is not clear how long the school still needs the location, which is another obstacle to the redevelopment of the site.
Korte Verspronckweg 7-9 description
The programme has not yet been determined. The plan is for a residential location, possibly with some public-benefit facilities.
One option to be explored is whether the site can be considered fully or partially for self-builds. In the discussion and confirmation of the land-use plan for Zijlweg and environs, the committee chairman promised that this would be taken into account when researching options for the location.
The location is part of the land-use plan for Zijlweg and environs which was adopted on September 11, 2014. It was intended that the amended plan would include the Lieven de Key development framework. However, a change in market circumstances has put a halt to the development, and a decision has been made to maintain the existing situation at the Lieven de Key location in the land-use plan. Future developments may be possible at a later stage with a separate environmental planning procedure.
- Municipality of Haarlem
Already established on this location
The municipality owns almost the entire area, and wants to restart the development of the area by third parties, in accordance with the stated principles of the 2005 Haarlem City Plan and the plan to upgrade the area near the railway station. At the moment, some of the existing buildings are being leased by a property management company to public-benefit organisations for a period of four to five years.
