PPRN: Where are we in its review?


The revision of the natural risk forecasting plan (PPRN) belongs to the services of the Deal, the directorate of the environment, planning and territory.

Only the cyclone component (marine submersion) was therefore subject to a revision which was applied early in early August 2019. New regulations and new zoning have been drafted, decisions which have not all have been approved by the population.

Hence the protests and blockades of December 2019. The Overseas Departments and the Ecological and Solidarity Transition then decided to send a mission with Dominique Lacroix, former prefect of Saint-Martin at its head.

This mission was in charge of collecting the observations of the population and delivering a report with recommendations in order to improve the regulation and the zoning defined by the Deal of Saint-Martin.

Seven main recommendations were made; the report was submitted for analysis to the relevant ministries in mid-March as planned; suggestions for changes to the regulations were then sent to the Deal, which remains in charge of drafting the final document.

Annick Girardin wanted a definitive application of the new PPRN before the start of the cyclone season. However, the covid-19 health crisis slowed the process.

Questioned two weeks ago by neighborhood representatives on this subject, the prefect of Saint-Martin said that she had not yet received arbitration from Paris.

Yesterday on the move to Saint-Martin, the Minister discussed the subject with neighborhood representatives and delivered items at a press conference. To read in our edition of tomorrow. (soualigapost.com)
