In the coming years, the Galgeriet will transform from an industrial into a residential area. The vacant buildings have now been demolished and the last buildings are now being purchased by the municipality. That is why Jachthaven Waterland is moving to the Hemmeland location. The relocation of the port is not easy because it involves land and water. When the agreements are finalized, we can start planning. In our newsletters we report the milestones related to the new harbour. What we now know is that the Hemmeland site will be the first to be changed (a residential tower is partly planned here) and that we will have two locations for some time to come. The Galgeriet project group informs the people of Monnickendam through newsletters. This can be found on the site of our municipality.
28-8-2023 The Galgeriet project is complex. Many parties are involved in the project (municipality of Waterland, entrepreneurs of the Galgeriet, BPD, Hoorne Vastgoed, Rijkswaterstaat, HHNK, Liander). We can only start adjusting the Hemmeland location once our land on the Galgeriet has been sold. That is not the case at the moment. Because the layout of the new harbour depends on the availability of resources, we have several options for the new harbour. That is why we cannot yet indicate when it will be ready and what it will look like exactly. We do know that we will certainly have a harbor office at the Waterland location for season 2024 and season 2025 and that we will have winter storage 2023-2024-2025 at both locations. The first step for the new harbour is to apply for a permit for the new boat crane at the Hemmeland location near the joll jetty. The barrier at the Hemmeland location will then be moved to its final position.
