Several events planned for Koningsdag in Eindhoven cannot go ahead. According to the council, they do not comply with safety regulations.
According to the council, emergency services cannot be efficient and safety will become as issue if these specific events continue. A celebration in de Wal has been cancelled because there is unsatisfactory access on the street.
There is also not permission for activities at Stratumseind. Outside tables and bars are not permitted as they hinder the exit routes in case of problems. A number of stages in Begijnenhof are also a huge obstacle for emergency services, writes the council.
The organisation of the parties during Koningsdag is not done by the council this year. A foundation made up of business owners is responsible for this, this year. The guarantee of public order and safety is still the councils job.
