Annual Report 2022

The board

The board consists of 9 board members on 01-01-2022. In early 2022, Mrs. M. Knol joined us as a prospective board member

On 31-12-2022 our board consists of 9 board members and 1 aspiring board member


Member count

At the beginning of 2022, the number of members was 1094

In 2022 we were able to welcome a total of 30 new members. 8 members moved within Wetland Wonen's working area and remained members. 54 members have moved (with or without notification to the tenants' association) or membership has ended due to: death, departure to a care home or departure elsewhere.

People often forget to report that they have moved.

But it is also regularly forgotten to inform us that people have bought a home through the project of WWG "Fine Buying".

It would be very nice if you let us know in time.

Total number of members as of 31-12-2022 is 1070

A number of times a year we receive the lists from WWG in order to be able to compare them with our lists in terms of membership of the tenants' association. This way we can keep track of who is a member.

The membership of the tenants' association is linked to the home and not to the person. So the moment one moves, the membership of the tenants' association automatically expires.


In 2022, WWG will have sold 10 social rental homes.



In 2022, the chairman and secretary held 10 informal meetings with the director.

As the daily board, we met 4 times. As a general board, we have met 12 times. We met once as the general board with the 2 members of the Supervisory Board, who represent us at Wetland Wonen in the Supervisory Board.

In the autumn of 2022, 2 new members were to be added to the Supervisory Board who will then be appointed in 2023,

The chairman and the secretary participated in the application procedure for the appointment of 2 new members of the Supervisory Board.


Some of these meetings were still via Teams due to Corona; yet meetings could also be held physically.

As a general board, we met 1 x with the management of WWG, due to circumstances also digitally via Teams.  

We had operational consultations 4x in 2022. We try to increase this to 6 times a year.

Contact persons of the complexes have regular consultations with the area directors. Namely: Mr. Anno van der Weide and Mr. E. Junk.

By complexes we mean: the Vierhoek in Blokzijl, the Perelaar in Wanneperveen, Nieuw Clarenberg, De Steinen Vuyst (there is no residents' committee here because the complex is too small for that) and 't Westerholt in Vollenhove, Gasthuysland, the Beukenhof and Kastanjehof in Hasselt, the Cingelhof, the Klampe and the Kraggehof in Zwartsluis, Zonnewiede in Giethoorn, Weidegreven and the Meente in Genemuiden, the Ahornhof, Wolthuismarcke and the Backermarke in Zwolle and De Landerijen in Oldemarkt.

 Each residents' committee meets twice a year (in spring and autumn) together with WWG and the contact person on behalf of the complex's tenants' association.

Most meetings of the residents' committee could physically take place in 2022.

The tenant's representatives. for the complexes and the chairman have consultations with the two area directors twice a year.


In March 2022, a meeting was held in the Landerijen in Oldemarkt for all the residents' committee. The purpose of a residents' committee was discussed here.

The committees that attended thought it was very successful.


We have spoken with WWG about their annual report/annual accounts for 2021 and about the annual plan and budget for 2022.


We have advised WWG on rent policy and rent increases.

The homes with a D, E, F and G label have not had a rent increase in 2022.

The average rent increase was 2.3%



We have received an explanation from WWG about maintenance work on homes and about the period in which this will take place.


We work together with other tenant organizations on the regional housing distribution system. We do this with the support of consultants from the Woonbond, namely Ms M. Hilbolling and Mr M. Groen.

For this we have already followed various sessions via Teams (i.e. digitally).

We will then include the information that is important for our tenants in the next edition of our association magazine.

We have signed a declaration of intent in the NoWoZo.


HVZ held 1x general meeting of members in 2022.

At this meeting we bid farewell to Mrs. PJA van Hilten.

She was treasurer of our association for over 20 years. She has been named an honorary member of our association.

In the second part of this members' meeting, we had Mrs Margreet Rink of the WMO municipality of Steenwijkerland as speaker.

There was a good turnout of members.


Courses and symposium

In connection with the new WBTR Act (Directorate and Supervision of Legal Entities Act), we have followed various webinars in order to achieve a good result for our association. We have adjusted our house rules accordingly. Our liability insurance has now also been arranged.

All that remains for us now is to go to the notary to record this by means of an amendment to the Articles of Association. This must be achieved before 1 July 2026.


In addition, we followed a number of webinars (online lecture) from the Woonbond on various topics, such as:

  • Municipal housing policy
  • Rental Policy
  • Performance agreements, parts 1 and 2
  • Get energy out of your bill (including various saving tips)
  • Sustainability
  • Demolition or renovation
  • Viability in Performance Agreements
  • Living and care in performance agreements
  • National developments, National Performance Agreements
  • Solar panels for tenants
  • Affordability
  • Rent allowance
  • Maintenance rental properties
  • Allocation rules and systems


Performance agreements

The tenants' association is a fully-fledged discussion partner in the performance agreements with Wetland Wonen and the municipalities of Zwartewaterland, Steenwijkerland and Zwolle.

The performance agreements, year bracket 2021, with the municipalities were evaluated in March/April 2022. Agreements that have not yet been finalized will be further elaborated and implemented in 2022. In the second half of 2022, new long-term agreements will be made with the municipality of Steenwijkerland for the period 2023-2026. Based on these new agreements, the year bracket for 2023 was drawn up in 2022, in which the current agreements will be further adjusted and elaborated. To this end, four meetings were attended or digitally attended by two people. 

The annual disc 2022 was signed for the municipality of Zwartewaterland at the beginning of March 2022. New long-term agreements have also been drawn up for Zwartewaterland for the period 2022-2024. The entire process of evaluation and determination of the year bracket has been delayed somewhat. This was partly caused by the departure of the officials charged with these matters. In 2022, four meetings were attended or digitally attended by two people for the performance agreements with the municipality of Zwartewaterland.



The tenant newspaper

We ensure that a tenant newspaper is published 4 times a year with information for our members. Of those 4 times, 1 time a newspaper is sent to all tenants of WWG and that is the Christmas edition.

The tenants' newspaper is also sent to all political parties, for which we have an address.




The members of the tenants' association received the Rent Guide at the beginning of April 2022 with an explanation of the rent increase as of 01-07-2022.

The Huurwijzer is a publication of the Nederlandse Woonbond, to which we are affiliated as a tenants' association.

When we receive the Huurwijzer, we always have a number of copies left over. These are then used to recruit new members.


We have also mediated between tenant and landlord for a number of tenants in order to arrive at an acceptable solution.

We gave 32 x oral advice to tenants who had problems with WWG and 16 x written advice.

Advice on maintenance that has not been carried out correctly, delivery of the house, acceptance of the house, moisture problems, etc.
