Two future bakeries is one too many in a village in the Puy-de-Dôme!


Highlights: Auvergne, France, is a city in the south of France. It has been the site of a long-running dispute between the city and its residents. The city wants to build a new town hall, but the residents want to keep the old one. The dispute is expected to continue until the end of the year, when the city will decide whether or not to build the new city hall. The current town hall is located in the town of Neschers, which is in the north of the country.

The worst part in Neschers: the Auvergne village has no shop to buy its bread and now two competing projects of boul

Will the bakery war take place in Neschers? This town of 850 souls, located a few kilometers south of Clermont-Ferrand, has been experiencing some turmoil in recent weeks. While the Auvergne village has not had a bakery for years, two opening projects came out of the boxes almost at the same time and in the same street!

One is carried by the town hall, the other by a retired individual. In 2020, this resident of the town bought a 600 m² wasteland building to install a car workshop at first. But, in May 2022, he embarked on work to make a bakery on the ground floor and invested 50,000 euros. Ovens, cold room, tarmac parking, the retiree comes out the big game.

Between legal imbroglio and bell tower war

But the town hall also carries its own project and does not hear it that way. Last April, the mayor of Neschers published a decree instructing the entrepreneur to temporarily interrupt all his steps on the grounds that his future activity "does not comply with the local urban plan (PLU) of the municipality under development". The area where its premises are located would not be dedicated to trade.

For his part, the retiree sees red and has just hired a lawyer to denounce the situation. Convinced that the mayor resents him, he says he is ready to "fight to the end". Between legal imbroglio and bell tower war, the inhabitants still do not have a bakery and have to make do with a bread vending machine. Until the conflict is settled, no doubt, in court.
