This brings the government back to a plan that it decided in 2012. The anticipated emptying of the Marine Corps and the financial and technical setbacks that appeared during the preparations mean that Visser still opts for a barracks in Nieuw Milligen.
Last month, Visser and Minister Bijleveld surprised part of the Council of Ministers with the intention of shooting ‘Vlissingen’.
The State Secretary was subsequently sent to Zeeland for consultation. This week, Visser again informed the Zeeland delegation at the Ministry of her doubts. Compensation for the region, which must miss the arrival of 1800 marine families, remains to be discussed.
