Controversy About André Rieu's Building Plan

CONTROVERSY ABOUT RIEU'S BUILDING PLAN
André Rieu would like to build on the east side of the St. Pietersberg, a large underground storage facility and Mayor Onno Hoes supposedly pledged cooperation during a personal meeting.
That appears to be the case according to a letter forwarded to the city council by the architectural office Jo van de Staay who represents Rieu. The storage facility, (50 X 82 feet), close to his Castle "de Torentjes" does not fit into the zoning plan as the site of an agrarian (open field) area of ​​high scenic value.
Through an official consultation response which Rieu has approved according to the architect's office, the construction of the storage facility might still be possible as soon as the new zoning law is adopted. The city rejected the plan before, partly because the planned entry is on an incline on the Urselinenweg, which is a typical hollow road and would disturb the scenery.
Rieu and Mayor Hoes confirm that the plan has recently been discussed, but discern the letter. According to Rieu's spokesperson Kerstin Cornelis, the "underground garage" was recently discussed when they were meeting together in planning an international conference on lung ailments.
Mayor Hoes said that "it would be viewed in a positive way". Spokesperson Bram Loeffen of the city indicated that Hoes told Rieu, this was not within his jurisdiction and he would forward the plan to the responsible alderman. "And that he did. Anything more than that has not been promised. Just to view plans positively. That we always do".
