No extension period Ferris wheel Egmond aan Zee

EGMOND AT THE SEA – Operator Jan Vallentgoed of the 38 meter high Ferris wheel in Egmond aan Zee, may not leave his wheel in 'Derp' any longer than Tuesday 31 August.

An official of the municipality of Bergen recently reacted negatively to his informal request to extend the period until the autumn holidays. The municipality of Bergen does not allow this because the owner, the municipality of Bergen and local residents have agreed this period together. The permit was issued on these grounds.

In addition, an Egmonder who lives opposite the wheel objected to the Ferris wheel. A homeowner who does not live in Egmond himself but rents out his home also informed the municipality that he was not happy with the Ferris wheel.. A municipal spokesperson confirms this. “The objectors complained about a limited view, noise from Ferris wheel visitors and a limited number of parking spaces.”

Fall Goods, who was allowed to leave his Ferris wheel last year until the autumn holidays, early unofficial extension until October. This is because he cannot develop other activities during those months due to the corona measures. Fall Goods: “All events will be canceled in those two months, which means I will miss out on income. It would therefore be nice to leave the Ferris wheel in Egmond aan Zee longer.”
