New compromise in club opening hour debate


Ben Kendall 2012-04-12

Open till 3 am on Saturdays and 5 am on Sundays. This is the new compromised proposal from the Social Democrats (S), Gothenburg's largest political party, in the ongoing club opening hours debate.

”Fridays is maybe when there are the most problems, and not Saturdays. After many discussions in the delegate body and with the Social Democrats' youth association we have arrived at this compromised proposal,” said Dario Espiga from the Social Democrats to P4 Göteborg.

The Social Democrats also believe that the new proposal will not lead to more illegal clubs opening up in Gothenburg, which is one of the concerns of a 3 am closing time.

The new proposal also includes greater monitoring of clubs with the 5 am licence - once a month as opposed to the current once every six-month inspections. It also includes a clampdown on ”black taxis” and improved safety on the Avenyn through collaborations with different organisations.

"The opening hours is just a small part of it all,” said Dario Espiga to Göteborgs-Posten.

The Moderats and the Liberals are still against a 3 am closure.

The municipal council will make a decision on the proposal on April 25.
