Denmark: allowed public natural swimming pond

»Abroad natural swimming ponds are common since several years. In particular, Austria has a long tradition, but also Germany, Switzerland and Sweden have public natural swimming ponds. These countries have adopted functional and performance requirements for their construction and operation. These requirements were decisive to established in this permit requirements for construction and operation of the natural swimming pond at Camping Ålbæk beach.«
How Lars Juncker, extraordinary IOB member for Denmark, reports, was one of the bases for the decision the overview of the legal nature of the swimming ponds in the different European countries (developed by IOB). It is an example of administrative action to be followed by others such as Spain and Greece.
