Analysis of reports on the impact of building investments on Natura 2000 sites in Poland based on own research
Natura 2000 sites in Poland, undertaking (building investment), report on the impact of a building investment on a Natura 2000 site
The paper presents the results of several analyses of reports on the impact of SFRs on Natura 2000 sites. The reports enumerated are documents which are the basis for the assessment of an undertaking (building project) on valuable natural areas. Legal regulations determine fairly precisely the scope of a report on the impact of an undertaking on the environment, although they are imprecise in regards to how the impact on Natura 2000 sites should be evaluated. The reports are prepared at the request of investors, who are not interested in demonstrating a significant impact of construction works and planned building structures on the condition that the protected features and the integrity of Natura 2000 sites. An incomplete report may foster neglect of environmental threats and be contradictory to the basic aim of the assessment, which it to exclude a possible occurrence of a significant impact of a building on the Natura 2000 network. The present paper shows analyses of reports in the context of the content required by the Act of 23 November 2008 on the release of information about environment and its protection, participation of the public in the environment, and protection and assessments of the environmental impact. The analysis presented in this article has shown that the reports did not have the characteristics of an expert environmental examination, wich is commonplace with respect reports on the environmental impact required in a classical impact assessment. Some reports were incomplete, and the predicted impact on Natura 2000 sites was not based on actual data.
