Hvidovre has a problem – it hasn’t got a centre.
In the run up to the next local elections Erling Groth (Facebook), a former member of the Social Democrats and director of Forstadskonsulenterne (now dissolved), has put together a new party, Nærdemokrati NU, and one of his things is the town centre. His proposal aims to attract – and keep – ressourcestærke borgere (aka taxpayers) to the area, which will also help with the communal pengepung (map on Facebook):
- A summer festival in Kulturtorvet.
- Smaller concerts in Gårdhaven.
- Meeting space: Gamle Sal.
- A Ny Sal for larger conferences and events, similar to Portalen in Greve, with a new entrance to Risbjerggård and toilets.
- More conference and meeting rooms.
- A restaurant ’Gården’ and some speciality shops.
- Space for outside events, markets and concerts – Rådhus Scenen.
- Outdoor seating area on Kulturtorvet in front of Risbjerggård, similar to Tingstedet in Valby.
