Celta de Vigo Stadium project in Tameiga

Question écrite de M. Thomas WAITZ - Commission européenne

Question de M. Thomas WAITZ,

Diffusée le 6 février 2024

Subject: Celta de Vigo Stadium project in Tameiga

On 20 June 2023, the Galician Regional Government granted initial approval for a project involving the construction of various facilities within 305 000 square meters of forest land in Tameiga for the Real Club Celta de Vigo football club.

There are several significant environmental concerns to consider:

1. The project will lead to a reduction in precious forest area. Forests are defined and protected as a carbon sink under the European Climate Law. Tameiga forest plays a crucial role in aiding the transition to climate neutrality.

2. There is a requirement to monitor the conservation status of water bodies and streams effectively. The proposed development, which includes stadiums, a hotel, restaurants, leisure shops, and parking facilities, is expected to consume over a million liters of water daily.

The affected legislation includes:

– Directive 2000/60/EC (framework for Community action in the field of water policy);

– Regulation (EU) 2018/1999, particularly Article 15;

– Regulation (EU) 2021/1119 (framework for achieving climate neutrality).

In the light of this:

1. What actions will the Commission take to ensure compliance with European environmental laws, such as potentially initiating infringement proceedings against the state for this unauthorised administrative approval?

2. Has the Commission provided any financial support for this project in the town of Mos?

Answer given by Mr Sinkevičius on behalf of the European Commission (4 April 2024)

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive (1) provides the adequate legal framework to consider the concerns raised by the Honourable Member prior to the granting of development consent for a project that may have significant effects on the environment.

The EIA requires that Member States evaluate the direct and indirect significant impact of the project based on a wide range of factors, including population and human health, biodiversity, land, soil, water, air, climate, landscape, or cultural heritage.

For projects listed in Annex II of the EIA Directive, including urban development projects (2), Member States must decide if an EIA is necessary through a case-by-case examination or through previously set thresholds or criteria.

The directive provides for specific review procedures to challenge the substantive or procedural legality of decisions, acts or omissions subject to the public participation provisions of the directive.

Without prejudice to the Commission’s role as guardian of the Treaties, the competent authorities in the Member States are primary responsible for the correct implementation of the provisions of the EIA Directive, which have been correctly transposed into Spanish law.

The Commission and the Member States share the management of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF ) (3). Member States are responsible for project selection, in line with the objectives of the programmes.
