|Korte Verspronckweg 7-9||2.8 ha|
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.
