The general commission on the elaboration of the new Saint Martin Natural Risk Prevention Plan (PPRN) was held on Wednesday, April 28th at the Hôtel de la Collectivité, in the presence of the Prefect Serge Gouteyron and his teams, who were auditioned by the elected officials of the territorial council on the stakes of this work. Questioned by the elected officials, the Prefect detailed the process of elaboration of the new PPRN, whose final regulations should be adopted next August.
The public consultation will take place throughout the month of May in the districts of Saint Martin, at a rate of 8 meetings (2 in each of the 4 districts), in order to inform the population widely on the issues of the new PPRN and to dialogue with it. The Collectivité will be present alongside the State for the widest possible consultation. The local elected officials will be attentive to this.
The new PPRN will have to integrate the reduction of the vulnerability of the houses located on the coast while authorizing the reconstruction under certain conditions.
The construction of the new PPRN will be based on the recommendations of the Lacroix report, the 2017 knowledge report, and will also take into account the recommendations of professionals (people of the art: CAUE – Architects – Design offices) and the complaints of the inhabitants. The objective is to deliver a protective document, as close as possible to the constraints and local realities.
Two sessions of meetings are scheduled from May 4th to 18th, then from May 20th to June 1st. The first public meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 4th at 6:00 p.m. in the refectory of the Lycée Robert Weinum in Grand Case. The population is invited to attend the public meetings.
