The police are investigating the case and believes that it is connected to the dispute regarding the so-called “Swimming Pool Garden”. 

Teitur Atlason, the Samfylkingin’s deputy mayor, resigned recently due to a new zoning plan for Vesturbæjarlaugin. He said it is absurd that the majority of the city council has allowed the owners of detached houses to sell a plot by Vesturbæjarlaugin for free.

Plots by Vesturbæjarlaugin have been disputed for years. The plots in question stand in the backyard of detached houses by Einimel 22-26 and Vesturbæjarlaugin.

The Planning and Transport Council wants to resolve a long-standing dispute by simply enlarging the private plots.
