After the cancellation of the PLUiH (local intermunicipal urban planning and habitat plan) in 2019 by the administrative court of Toulouse, the Administrative Court of Appeal of Bordeaux must render its decision in February or March. The starting signal for the development of a new plan will be given by the metropolis on February 10 for application in 2025.
The cancellation of the PLUiH, the first metropolitan urban plan, on April 11, 2019 by the administrative court of Toulouse, continues to disrupt construction in the agglomeration. If we returned to previous urban plans, in each municipality, a certain legal vagueness remains for the allocation of building permits. The mayor of Toulouse and the president of the metropolis respond to the Dispatch.
What will happen after the cancellation of the PLUiH?
The PLUiH file is still on the table. We have two deadlines. The first is the judgment of the appeal against the cancellation by the Administrative Court of Appeal of Bordeaux that we have seized. She must give her verdict next month or the month after. We also got back to work. An important deliberation will be presented on February 10 to the metropolitan council to launch the development of the new PLUiH, which will take at least three years with the integration of the Climate and Resilience law. The new PLUiH should not come into force before 2025.
In concrete terms, did this translate into a comment?
The law asks us to halve the Enaf (natural agricultural and forest areas) of the most dynamic agglomeration in France. We have to accommodate a large new population every year, but we have to consume as little space as possible.
Does that mean building the city on top of the city and a little higher?
Already, 70% of the urban development of Toulouse is done by urban renewal and only 30% by extension. We only have a few sectors where we can practice urban extension, such as Marcaissonne or Paleficat. But on the outskirts, it’s the opposite. consultation will be delicate. People don’t want density imposed by law. There will be times of tension.
