The work phases are continuing for the redevelopment of the Meldertsebaan in Lummen. In the fourth, it was decided that André’s farm will be demolished, much to the chagrin of the 74-year-old Belgian, who was born there and lives there alone.
“I have no intention of moving to an assisted living facility. But I can continue to live on my plot in a residential unit. A long time ago, I went to see such a residential unit in Paal and I liked it, ”explains the septuagenarian firmly to HBVL.
Mayor Luc Wouters indicates for his part that “André’s house must be demolished”: “The man has been expropriated and a solution has already been sought in consultation with the family and the social services. All those affected have been informed and we have also already organized an information meeting”.
