Brussels callout for action!
No to a car park under the place du Jeu de Balle!
The city of Brussels has recently decided to build four new underground car parks in the city center (Nouveau Marché aux Grains, Yser, place Rouppe and place du Jeu de Balle), linked by a „mini-ring“. This project is not based on any study and does not respond to any needs: in the numerous car parks in the city center, 6000 to 7500 parking spaces are not occupied. Such a projet, if realised, will disfigure several squares and places in Brussels, create additional traffic in neighbourhoods already congested and will cause years of suffering for the population of Brussels due to construction work.
We are merchants, shopkeepers, residents of the Marolles and all of Brussels, lovers of this neighbourhood and consumersatits fleamarket. We opposethe construction of this unnecessary car park under the place du Jeu de Balle with all our forces. Its realisation would have horrendous consequences for the fleamarket, the local businesses, the residents and for the existing diversity of this neighbourhood. Instead ofanother big construction site, the place du Jeu de Balle and its historic underground deserve to be classified. Unparalleled in the world, the fleamarket, which takes place regularly since 1873, and the resulting activities in its surroundings, constitute an economic, social and cultural heritage to be saved by all means possible.
