Compatibility of the ‘Terminillo Stazione Montana 2’ project with EU legislation

Question écrite de Mme Rosa D'AMATO - Commission européenne

Question de Mme Rosa D'AMATO,

Diffusée le 28 mars 2021

Subject: Compatibility of the ‘Terminillo Stazione Montana 2’ project with EU legislation

The project known as TSM2 involves the construction of new ski lifts and ski runs on Monte Terminillo. The project includes ten new ski lifts, 37 km of ski runs, the felling of 17 hectares of ancient beech forest (with trees up to 400 years old) and the construction of 8.7 km of ditches in irreplaceable meadows.

The area covered by the project, which is part of the Natura 2000 network, includes the presence of golden eagles, wolves and bears, as well as special areas of conservation (SAC) IT6020009 ‘Bosco di Vallonina’ and IT6020007 ‘Monte Terminillo Group’.

The shortage of snow is supposed to be remedied by the construction of two water reservoirs for artificial snow (a total of 136 000 m³ of water to be diverted from groundwater and watercourses).

Environmental associations have identified a number of problems1.

Can the Commission check:

1. whether the plan/work programme described above should have been subject to strategic environmental assessment (SEA) under Directive 2001/42/EC;

2. whether the plan to replace the chair-lift Fonte della Pietra–Campostella, part of the work programme, should have been subject to environmental impact assessment (EIA) under Directive 2014/52/EU; and

3. whether there has been a misapplication of the procedures relating to compensatory measures under Article 6(4) of Directive 92/43/EEC?

Réponse - Commission européenne

Diffusée le 30 mai 2021

Answer given by Mr Sinkevičius on behalf of the European Commission (31 May 2021)

The Commission is currently investigating a complaint lodged in 2020 and covering the three questions raised by the Honourable Member.

Projects for ski runs, ski lifts and associated developments fall under point 12(a) of Annex II of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive (3). For such projects, there is no automatic obligation for an EIA. Member States have to determine, either through a case-by-case examination or according to thresholds or criteria, whether the project is to be made subject to an assessment because of its likely significant effects on the environment, taking into account the relevant selection criteria set out in Annex III of the directive.

The works related to the replacement of a chair-lift appear to qualify as a modification to an existing project, falling under point 13(a) of Annex II of the EIA Directive, and as such should be subject to a determination whether to be made subject to an assessment. If during the determination it is concluded that the replacement would have significant adverse effects, then it should be subject to an EIA.

Compensation measures under Article 6(4) of the Habitats Directive (4) are required under specific circumstances, in particular if it were found that the project would have a significant effect on the relevant protected site, and in the absence of mitigation measures or alternative solutions the project needs to be carried out for imperative reasons of overriding public interest. These assessments are for the competent national authorities.
