The development of the site Noorderhaven in Julianadorp has led to the realization of a green recreational zone along the edge of De Schooten, a neighbourhood in the south of Den Helder.

Noorderhaven is a section of the ‘s Heerenloo care facility that is being redeveloped by van Wijnen developers. Because trees will need to be removed from the site, van Wijnen has created a mitigation plan based on the Flora and Fauna Act. They will plant trees in De Schooten in order to create a forest habitat to house the protected animals which now live in Noorderhaven: the common buzzard, sparrow hawk, long-eared owl, Eurasian green  woodpecker, great spotted woodpecker, common pipistrelle, common brown long-eared bat and the pond bat.

The city of Den Helder has indicated the neighbourhood of De Schooten as an area in need of green and recreation in its Policy on Green. The Policy can be partially realized with the Noorderhaven mitigation plan. The design proposal has been carried out in three steps: site inventory to determine the mitigation area along with sketch designs based on the Flora and Fauna Act, an ecological test and the development of the plan into a design and planting plan.
