– A disaster for the boating environment in the capital. The fjord city is losing its proximity and contact with the sea, says general secretary Stig Hvide Smith of the Royal Norwegian Boating Association (KNBF) in a press release.
The boating association has engaged lawyers to avoid an eviction of the boat owners in the area. The association believes that there are no replacement spaces for the 1,500 boat storage spaces and for 199 boat spaces in the lake, and that this is contrary to the requirements for the area regulation of Skøyen.
If the city council adopts the zoning plan for Skøyen, there will be complaints to the State Administrator and possibly legal action, lawyer Christian Bugge writes in a comprehensive statement to the City Council’s department for urban development.
He believes that the municipality is not allowed to adopt such a zoning plan without it being clarified how this will be financed.
The boating associations on Skøyen have previously sent a proposal to change the zoning plan to the municipality, but this has not been investigated, or taken forward by the municipality.
The city council’s plan is to bring the matter before the city council as early as possible after Easter.
It is part of history that there is a waiting period of up to ten years for a boat space in several of the boat associations in the capital.
