    Environmental aspects

    Although not located in the EU, the project would be subject to the EU EIA Directive (2014/52/EU) and the Birds and Habitats Directives (2009/147/EC and 92/43/EEC respectively). An Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was completed and submitted to the Bank in 2017 and is being assessed in the context of the appraisal. The project is located some 1.4 km from the nearest conservation area. Appraisal will review the proposed arrangements, for an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and monitoring measures that seek to avoid, mitigate or compensate for negative environmental or social impacts.


    The legal/contractual documentation will require the promoter to ensure that any procurement procedures are done in accordance with the Bank's Guide to Procurement, the relevant applicable EU public procurement rules and relevant applicable local legislation. Publications of tender notices have already taken place in the Official Journal of the European Union, as required.
