Preparations for the RIF010 surf paradise in the center of Rotterdam must be stopped.
The Rotterdam court decided that after protests from local residents.
The court can only proceed with the preparation if a substantive procedure against the arrival of RIF010 is completed. The verdict means that construction cannot yet begin.
In Steigersgracht, if it depends on the initiators, a sort of whitewater course will be built on which people will be able to surf in 2017. The inhabitants fear nuisance and have gone to court. The plan was made possible in part by the City Initiative. Consequently, the municipality of Rotterdam contributes 3 million euros to the plan. The building permit was already issued at the end of last year.
