We have written about it before, but now it is definite: a dependance of the Conservatory will be established in the buildings of the old St. Nicolaas convent. We would have preferred the buildings to be demolished (especially the big brick building) to make way for more green in the park. But the municipality decided otherwise. Of all the options there were for that building, we think this is a fine solution. The plans look good and have been made with respect for the surroundings.
Some members of the Vrienden are worried about the scale of the catering business which will be situated where As is currently situated. The board of the Vereniging does not share these worries; the meetings which have been held so far indicate that the peace and quiet of the park are very important to the new owner as well.
