Le nouveau stade de Bruges accueillera uniquement des matchs de football

La ministre de l’Economie et sa collègue de l’Environnement, Zuhal Demir (N-VA), ont signé mercredi un permis d’environnement pour le nouveau stade du Club Bruges, qui doit voir le jour sur le site de l’actuel stade Jan Breydel. L’enceinte pourra accueillir 40.116 personnes contre 29.062 actuellement. Les opposants peuvent toujours aller en appel contre le permis mais il s’agit d’une grande avancée pour le projet. Le Club Bruges y travaille depuis près de 15 ans. Les conditions du permis sont strictes. Le club ne peut exploiter qu’un fan shop, un musée et un bar dans son stade, pas de centre commercial. Il prévoit également un plan de mobilité afin de limiter les nuisances pour les riverains. “Nous veillerons à ce que le plan soit correctement mis en oeuvre”, a prévenu la ministre Demir. Les deux ministres ont souligné qu’une solution est également à l’étude pour le Cercle Bruges. Le dossier de stade de la deuxième équipe brugeoise, qui partage actuellement le stade Jan Breydel avec le Club Bruges, est toujours en attente. (Belga)
