Notice of proposed sale of land

The City of Leeuwarden plans to conclude a purchase agreement with a party for plots of land in Mantgum and Grou:

  • Near Om ‘e Terp 25 in Mantgum, measuring 27 m2, known in the cadastral municipality of Jorwerd, section G, number 1172 dls.
  • Near Biensma 1A in Grou, measuring 22 m2, cadastrally known municipality of Grouw, section A, number 6236 dls.

The candidate wants to use the plot of land to install a transformer that is within the applicable zoning plan.

One serious candidate

Due to a ruling by the Supreme Court, the Municipality must give equal opportunities to interested parties when issuing land. A selection procedure is not necessary if it has been established in advance or can reasonably be assumed that only one candidate will be eligible for the land. The municipality believes that in this case the exception rule as stated in the judgment applies and there is only one serious candidate for the following reason.

The municipality is of the opinion that in this case there is only one serious candidate, because the land in question is needed to install a transformer, which is necessary to maintain the utilities. The plot in question is part of the public space, is not adjacent to a private plot, is isolated and is not eligible for sale to other parties.

Disagree with the intention?

Any other candidate who believes that he should also be eligible for this right must file summary proceedings regarding this case with the Northern Netherlands District Court within 20 calendar days of the date of this publication (28 February 2024).
