The residents' association of Luxembourg-Clausen aims to launch new legal proceedings against the Rives de Clausen and the City of Luxembourg.

(ADW) The residents' association of Luxembourg-Clausen aims to launch new legal proceedings against the Rives de Clausen and the City of Luxembourg.

According to residents the new licences laws for bar owners, passed on June 22 do not respect the conditions laid down by the courts, and were instead tailored to the needs of bar and café owners.

Local residents complained they were also not protected from noise caused by Rives de Clausen.

Residents believe that new licensing laws include foggy, unclear rules. Using the food ruling as an example they said under the licensing laws it is forbidden to eat on Clausen terrace after 11pm, but next to the terrace does not appear to be a problem!

Luxembourg City “dodges it's responsibilities”

Local residents said that the Board of Aldermen should not try to dodge its responsibilities by claiming it did not have the means to verify whether the conditions of the licences are met or not, instead passing responsibility to the police.

The residents' association still complained of “nuisances” caused by Rives de Clausen, and fears that further development of six more pavement cafés in the area will not help matters.

In addition, it complained that not everyone uses the free shuttle bus funded by bar owners between Clausen and the Glacis car park and many take their own cars, causing pollution. Not altogether surprising as a large multi-storey car park was recently opened in Clausen.
