Former hotel-restaurant In den Stallen on the outskirts of Winschoten must not become a reception location for Ukrainians and status holders. This is the opinion of a majority of politicians Oldambt, it appears on Monday evening during a specially arranged meeting.
However, that does not automatically mean that the strategy is too off the job. The mayor and aldermen may decide independently whether or not to proceed, but will take the advice of council members into consideration.
In the Stables
The council wants to accommodate a maximum of a hundred people between Beerta and Winschoten. Most of them will consist of Ukrainian refugees.
Several local residents see there nothing in, partly due to the high number . About twenty people live in the vicinity of In den Stallen. A hundred ‘new neighbours’ would have to be added to that. That objection is also the main reason for many parties to react disapprovingly to the plans.
Municipal interests Oldambt already asked its own alderman – who is responsible for the reception of status holders – last week to pull the plug on the strategy, because the location is not suitable according to the party. Seven other parties are now joining them.
The CDA ‘doubts about the suitability of the location’, the VVD ‘is not against reception, but at this location’ and the PVV believes that other municipalities should take the next step.
Not only the location, also certain transactions play a role in their decision to dig in their heels.
Local residents have dived into the sale and resale of In den Stallen. According to them, it was anything but clean. The former owner of In den Stallen has sold the company to a development company. That development company would then have resold In den Stallen for 150,000 euros more.
The municipality only found out about this after local residents sounded the alarm . It is precisely pass away that a striking transaction is leading for the opinion of the PvdA, the largest party in the municipality. Hilbert Flokstra of the PvdA: ‘How can you combine this with humanitarian goals? We conclude that you cannot reconcile that satisfactorily. On that basis, we should not go through with this.’
The VCP also thinks that you should not at all for pass away reasons ‘fulfilled companies of this kind’ should go into the sea.
Cowboys with euro signs
The municipality has initiated a so-called bibob procedure. An investigation is being carried out into the current owner of the property.
Mayor Cora-Yfke Sikkema about the resale and de 150.00 0 euro: ‘We are doing a good test to see which company is behind this. There are cowboys pass away who only have euro signs in mind. We all don’t want that. I therefore want to have this tested nationally and trust the pass away outcome.’
In the meantime, it remains exciting whether or not the college will continue with its plans. Sikkema: ‘The Board will process all input today or next week and make a decision.’
