Forty percent of the residents in our neighbourhood are of foreign origin.
Many of them live here for a few years and then leave. The newcomers need information about our neighbourhood.
This was a reason for the directors of the Residents Organisation to develop a brochure in English with a wealth of information about the neighbourhood.
So the brochure includes information about locations of the cash points and rubbish bins, doctors, pharmacies, the local police station, information about public transport, shop opening times and so on.

The brochure has since then been distributed in the district to be easily at hand.

The municipality of The Hague warmly welcomes this initiative in order to give a “Feel at Home” to the many foreigners.

Your Community Association has a contract with The Hague Municipal Council making it possible for property owners in your neighbourhood to benefit from the free (collective) removal of graffiti (the so-called graffitiregeling).

But do you always report any graffiti or posters defacing your property? Those who have already reported such defacement know how important it is to do this quickly. The sooner you get in touch, the sooner the Council can arrange to have the graffiti and/or posters removed. Timely cleaning is especially important where the walls are the sort that absorb the spray paint used by graffiti vandals.

What do you do?
Just mail the completed authorization form to meldpuntgraffiti@denhaag.nl or telephone direct to 070 353 46 05 (Monday to Friday from 9.30 till 16.30) or the general number for The Hague Municipal Council 14070. If you have not yet signed up, don’t put it off any longer. Telephone the Graffiti Hotline for a special subscription to the graffiti clean-up service 070 353 46 05
or e-mail: meldpuntgraffiti@denhaag.nl

Want to know more?
If you want to know more about the clean-up service and the arrangement your Community Association has with the Council just telephone the Graffiti Hotline and quickly receive answers to all your questions. Take care of your property and work with the Council for a clean and safe city free of defacement.
