Environmental aspects

Compliance with EU environmental directives and national laws shall be ensured. In principle, measures and programmes focusing on upgrading of existing housing stock will not require an EIA under EU Directive (85/337/EEC as amended 97/11/EC) but this will be further verified during appraisal. Should some components of the project involve construction in greenfield areas, the promoter will be required to produce an EIA.


Compliance with EU procurement directives and national laws shall be ensured.
