Socialists to submit motion to make Lake Balaton beaches free

The opposition Socialist Party will submit a bill in the autumn to make the beaches around Lake Balaton free, MP Zsolt Molnar said in video posted on Facebook on Sunday.

Speaking at a press conference in Zamardi, on the southern shore of the lake, Molnar said their proposal states that municipalities should be given compensation for providing free access to the beaches on the lakeshore. He cited the example of Croatia, where a law was passed recently which forbids collecting money for access to the Adriatic Sea.

Molnar said the aim of their bill was to ensure free access to the lake for everyone, “with local government maintenance, and to avoid overconstruction” at Lake Balaton.
