With the ZKB-rope railway and the construction of 68 apartments and villas are planned in the near future, some of the big projects on the shores around the lake of Zurich. Against these projects, there is already resistance in the Form of Objections, petitions or Motions in the municipal Council. But that's not enough for the Wollishofer Peter-Wolfgang von Matt. He wants to be authentic and write in the municipal code, the city of Zurich, prevents all of the buildings which cause a Shadow on the public green space on the lakeshore.
"sunlight is fundamental"
Therefore, he launched together with the initiative Committee today, the so-called "on the tanning Initiative". It was a big need of the population to have a rest on the lake, on the meadows, says of Matt: "The light of the sun is fundamental. Shadow would ruin the quality of such a Meadow."
Should it be forbidden to build on the shore buildings, the shadows on the meadows?Yes.
The city Council has reviewed the Initiative and noted that it meets formal and legal requirements for an Initiative. Thus, start from the Matt and the initiative Committee to Collect the signatures. Within the next six months, 3000 get together signatures of city Voters, it might be "on the tanning Initiative" in front of the people. Whether the content is valid is not yet clear. This is the city Council only after the Initiative has been filed with sufficient valid signatures.
construction projects, already far
Controversial advanced is most likely to be a point of the Initiative. You want the height of existing Buildings around the lake to the level of 1. April 2019 freezing, as it says in the initiative's text. However, for the seven-storey building with 68 apartments of Franz-Garage behind the large Meadow at the GZ Wollishofen the building permit is already running process. It is questionable whether the Initiative can stop a construction project that is already so far advanced, yet.
