Waterfront zones gone
According to a note that KøbenhavnLIV has come into possession of, the move comes as a result of City Hall expecting a decline in the number of people using outdoor areas with the onset of winter.

And as a result, the marked restriction zones on the wooden decks at the waterfront areas of Sandkaj, Krøyers Plads and Bølgenog on Islands Brygge will be removed.

The ongoing practice of chalk-marking the green part of Havneparken will also be stopped.
