Court satisfies SIA Lidl Latvija’s request – construction work to continue
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.
