17 June 2022 Impact study and net clause - BJDU


In a column published in the Bulletin de Jurisprudence de Droit de l’Urbanisme (BJDU), Xavier de Lesquen and Anne-Laure Gauthier review the net clause and the reasons for its introduction last March. This new mechanism makes it possible to submit to environmental assessment projects that are below the thresholds provided for in the Environmental Code but that have a significant impact on the environment or human health.
However, it is not without raising many questions concerning the examination of requests for urban planning authorization.
In their article, the lawyers of the Lacourte Raquin Tatar law firm highlight the new provisions provided for in the Environmental Code and in the Urban Planning Code.
The column was published in the May-June issue of the BJDU.
