Soon, Tina Turner (82) will be resting with her husband Erwin Bach (65) in Stäfa ZH this weekend. The Queen of Rock bought a country estate on Lake Zurich for about 70 million francs. that reported «Handelszeitung». It covers an area of 24,000 square metres, and contains ten buildings, a pond, streams, a swimming pool, and a boat dock. But the calm may end soon because of a sea route through your property, how new mentioned.
The reason for this is the association Ja zum Seeuferweg. The use of the lake shore has been a dispute among Zurich residents for years. Because Swiss law states that bodies of water are the property of the public. This includes banks. The association refers to the Spatial Planning Act, which states: “In particular, the banks of the lake and rivers shall remain free and public access and inspection shall be facilitated.”
Zurich residents fight on the lake shore
The president of the association, politician SP Julia Gerber Rüegg (64), postulates that Turner must “sooner or later accept that a public footpath will lead near the bank, that is, over her large property”. Left and green politicians are upset that many parts of the beach are privately owned villas with lagoon access. If the Ja zum Seeuferweg is successful, it is likely that the spectators will soon be on Tina Turner.
Gerber Rogge suspects the couple is aware of this. “Despite this limitation, it seems they were willing to spend 70 million on it,” she says. “However, it is up to you to work with the authorities to find a good solution that will protect your privacy and the nature of the river pretty well, while respecting the public’s right to shore.” (BSN)
