Formally, the plan will be scrapped at a meeting of the culture and leisure committee on Wednesday 17 March, where the draft restaurant and nightlife plan is on the agenda.
The parties behind are the Social Democrats, the Radicals, the Conservatives, the Socialist People’s Party, the Liberal Party and the Danish People’s Party.
The draft of the new plan states that a stop must be made for grants after midnight in Indre By, Indre Nørrebro, Indre Vesterbro and Christianshavn.
A stop that will also apply to renewals and transfers, and which according to the six parties would phase out the nightlife in the districts.
But according to the majority, the time is not right to create uncertainty now that the city needs to get the nightlife back. And the Radicals do not see living and alcohol free zones in the city at all.
– There are many good elements and suggestions in the nightlife plan. But unfortunately, they are completely overshadowed by the uncertainty that is being created about the nightlife of the future.
– Therefore, we must change the things that are about the appropriations before we can look at the plan as a whole. It is approaching the world’s worst timing to send such a draft out in the current situation and where the city needs to get the nightlife back, the parties write.
Instead, a new plan should support a reopening that focuses on fewer nuisances from noise, time, broken glass, pee, drugs, violence, speakers and party buses.
– We can only create that development together with nightlife restaurateurs, retailers and authorities with the involvement of neighbors, nightlife primarily young guests and other parties in the nightlife, the six parties write.
