“Fondo Polaris Parma Social House”, a closed real estate fund.
The project involves the construction of 852 new social and affordable housing units in two phases (ca. 50% of units in each phase). The energy efficiency performance is expected to reach class B. Two of the sites are brownfield areas, while the remaining five sites are in-field developments in already urbanised areas.
The construction of new social/affordable dwellings aims at meeting the need for housing in the city of Parma. The project is mainly targeted at socially and/or economically disadvantaged individuals and families.

The question of the sub-projects falling within a plan or a programme requiring a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in line with EU Directive 2001/42/EC will be further examined. The construction of housing falls under Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU (urban development project), according to which the competent authority decides on the full EIA on a case by case basis. During appraisal the compliance with EU directives will be assessed.
