Part of Lulstraat gets new name, which is in Kruisem equally controversial
Kruisem The planned change of a street name in Kruishoutem will not expire without a struggle. The city council wants to be part of the Lulstraat soon Rensonstraat call. According to the opposition in the city council pleziert the company Renson, which is on the neighbouring industrial estate and factory building. “No, not really: this is a tribute to Polidor Renson, the founder of this company, that all four generations in Kruishoutem active”, meaning mayor Joop Versele (CD&V).

The Lulstraat is a dead-end side road of the Deinsesteenweg in Kruishoutem. A part of the street is part of the further development of The industrial area Prijkels, where the company Renson soon a building dissipates. Renson manufactures terrasoverkappingen, carports, facade elements and elements. Renson will soon be the name of the street where the new plant comes.

advertising

it's a street the name of a company, Filip Geysens (Open Vld) not at all. “It is in violation of the decree for the protection of the names of public streets and squares. It says that a street is not allowed to call to a person in life. You must be at least ten years of death to a street name. There is nothing in the decree about the name of a street to a company, but what happens now, is a very dangerous precedent. If you allow this, can any entrepreneur to the municipality to ask for a street to mention to his company. I find that a politico à la tête du client, a pure form of advertising. When choosing names for streets and squares will preferably take into account the local history, the arts and cultural life and folklore, as is also stated in the decree. And company name fits in there completely not in”, says Geysens.

“Not for company, but for founder Polidor”

Mayor Joop Versele denies that the municipal authorities with the choice of the new street name, the company has a service wants to prove.

“You need to see this all as a tribute to Polidor Renson. He was the founder of the company, now in its fourth generation. The company has an international feel, but maintains its local anchorage. We call the street is not to the company but to its founder,” says Versele.

However, the name is not Polidor Rensonstraat, but just Rensonstraat: this is the will of the majority in the city council. The name change is not yet final: there now, start a public inquiry, and also the municipal even broader detail has yet to issue an opinion. This brings the case back to the municipal council, which is definitively the knot say.
