Is your sidewalk clear of snow and ice?

Snow and icy sidewalks are a nuisance and a danger during the winter months. So the Ville de Luxembourg is keen to remind property owners and tenants, as well as businesses, of their legal requirement to maintain and clear the sidewalk in front of their building from snow and ice.

In addition, during periods when temperatures fall below freezing, the jettisoning of water onto side- walks and streets is prohibited.

If a building houses several occupants, the obligation to clear the sidewalk falls on each resident or tenant, unless a formal agreement has been made that requires one of them, or a third party, to keep the sidewalks clear of snow and ice.
