Baltic News Network - - News -

Ad­min­is­tra­tive Dis­trict Court has sat­is­fied the re­quest from SIA Lidl Latvija re­gard­ing tem­po­rary pro­tec­tion and has re­stored the per­mit is­sued by Riga City Con­struc­tion Of­fice in July 2017 re­gard­ing the con­struc­tion of a lo­gis­tics cen­tre on Ul­brokas Street, Riga, says Ad­min­is­tra­tive Dis­trict Court judge’s as­sis­tant Ilze Butkus.

She re­minds that the con­struc­tion per­mit is re­stored on the same day the court an­nounces its ver­dict.

«The court con­cluded that a de­tailed plan was not nec­es­sary be­cause the main re­quire­ments for the project were al­ready pre­pared in ter­ri­to­rial lo­cal plans. The court also con­cluded that there was no need to or­ga­nize a public dis­cus­sion, be­cause con­struc­tion is not ex­pected to cre­ate any ma­jor in­flu­ence,» Butkus ex­plains.

The con­struc­tion plan in­cludes build­ing an­other ware­house in the ex­ist­ing com­mer­cial quar­ter. The ware­house, though large, does not cre­ate a great deal of pol­lu­tion on its own. In­creased traf­fic will be or­ga­nized on the streets al­ready agreed upon in plan­ning doc­u­ments.

Street-plan­ning process, which also in­cludes in­volve­ment from res­i­dents, has al­ready hap­pened. The process re­sulted in devel­op­ment of the nec­es­sary plan­ning doc­u­ments, Butkus re­ports.
