The installation of mobile telecommunication networks do not fall under Annexes I and II of Directive 2011/92/EU as amended, and are therefore not subject to mandatory environmental impact assessment. There is no particular negative residual environmental impact expected.
The promoter is a private company not operating in the Utilities sector and not having the status of a contracting authority. Therefore it is thus not covered by EU directives on procurement.
