Reprieve for Port of Kolding

Cargo activities at the Port of Kolding will continue, following a change of heart by the local council

The municipality of Kolding voted unexpectedly around a year ago to cease all cargo handling activity at the port no later than 2043, citing the need for more residential estate

However, four members of the council refused to ratify the decision. Now four members of the Social Democratic Party have also come out against closure and, following an emergency meeting in the Town Hall, Mayor Jorn Pedersen has cancelled the closure plan.

While this is welcome news for the port, the municipality may have to do more to reassure potential investors in the East Jutland port.
