Consultations carried out
In November 2022, VA SYD invited contributions to two written consultations: one prior to the application for an environmental permit under the Environmental Code to build and operate a new wastewater treatment system, and one prior to the application for a permit under the Continental Shelf Act to lay new outlet pipes in the Öresund. We car-ried out both consultations in accordance with Chapter 6 of the Environmental Code.
The consultation period lasted until 7 April 2023. This gave affected property owners, residents, businesses, public authorities, organisations and others the opportunity to make comments and ask questions. We responded to the comments and questions received during the consultation period in a consultation report that was an appendix to each permit application, one for a permit under the Environmental Code and one for a permit under the Continental Shelf Act. VA SYD submitted an application for a permit under the Environmental Code to the Land and Environment Court in Växjö in 2023. At the same time, we applied to the Government for a permit under the Continental Shelf Act.
How it works
When municpalities or municipal associations like VA SYD are planning an activity that require a consultation, affected are given a possibility to provide their opinion. You are allowed to leave your opinion and ask questions during a certain time period. The consultation is made in order to collect information at an early stage when there is a possibility to take the opinions into consideration by making adjustments in the implementation stage. All opinions are collected and commented on in a so called consultation report.
