29 June 2022 Article on the practical impact of the net clause


In a new article published in the Moniteur, Anne-Laure Gauthier and Xavier de Lesquen review the practical implications of the net clause, introduced by the decree of March 25, 2022 (nº 2022-422), on real estate projects. As seen above, the mechanism allows for projects below the thresholds to be subject to environmental assessment, but which, notably because of their location, are likely to have significant impacts on the environment or human health.
However, although the decree provides for the articulation of this new system – in particular with the declarations for installations, works, works and activities (IOTA), as well as with the declarations for classified installations for environmental protection (ICPE) or even with the authorizations for land clearing – the net clause raises certain questions regarding the examination of urban planning authorizations.

The article can be consulted in the June-July issue of the Revue Opérations Immobilières as well as on the Moniteur website: https://lnkd.in/eTTDiGrs
