Your plan for Benoordenhout could get € 40,000

Published: 20 November 2020Modified: 20 November 2020

The municipality is making funds available to make Benoordenhout more beautiful, physically active and greener. Everybody aged 12 years and older who lives, works or goes to school in the neighbourhood is invited to come up with a plan. The plans could be awarded up to € 40,000 for their execution. Submit your plan before 13 December 2020.

The municipality will decide if the plans are feasible. Afterwards the residents of Benoordenhout will divide the money among the feasible plans. This way the neighbourhood itself decides which plans will be executed.

How it works

You submit your plan by Sunday, 13 December 2020 using the registration form on www.benoordenhoutbegroot.denhaag.nl. Your plan will then be published online right away. It is up to you to drum up attention for your plan. For example, by sharing your plan on social media.

The neighbourhood votes

Everybody in the neighbourhood who is 12 years and older can vote for the plans from 16 November to 20 December 2020 by giving them a ‘like’. Does your plan have at least 25 likes on 20 December? Then the plan will proceed to the next round. During this round the municipality will examine the remaining plans in terms of feasibility. The municipality will announce all the feasible plans on 15 February 2021 on www.benoordenhoutbegroot.denhaag.nl.

Residents divide € 40,000

Together with the people in your neighbourhood  as of 15 February 2021 you decide which plans will go ahead. You can divide the amount of € 40,000 among 1 or more plans. You and the people in your neighbourhood have until 14 March 2021 to decide.
