Deeper soil investigation needed at possible new homeless shelter
It will take until spring before it becomes clear whether the former school building on Severenstraat in Amby will serve as a new shelter and social hostel for the homeless.
Several studies have already taken place in recent months to determine whether the location is suitable. A conclusion should then be drawn at the end of this year.
However, deeper soil research is still needed, writes wethouder Anita Bastiaans. This is because the soil is contaminated. Hence, the final verdict is still some time away.
The current homeless shelter is still located at Singel 9.
