Participation and Communication
In the participation procedure that began in early 2018, local residents and other stakeholders were able to offer their ideas about the plans for the new development of the Humanities Campus.
This procedure was completed in March 2019 and the Urban Development Plan and Visual Quality Plan were presented to the Board of the Mayor and Aldermen.
For the six weeks up to 16 May, the Urban Development Plan and Visual Quality Plan are open to public inspection in Leiden City Hall and the Stadsbouwhuis. After this, the comments will be processed by the City Council and the University and documented in a report. Depending on the comments, the Board of the City Council can amend its proposed decision. The City Council will then make a definitive decision about the plans. If this decision is positive, the University can continue to develop the various sub-projects.
Work on the buildings of the Witte Singel-Doelen Complex will take place one by one. The University will inform local residents and other stakeholders about the development of each of the sub-projects. The method and frequency of this communication will depend on the scope of the sub-project and its impact on the surrounding area. During the implementation phase, the contractor will have an important role in the communication.
