BILL nº 133/X LAYS DOWN PROTECTION MEASURES ‡ is ƒ the DSB BILL nº 133/X establishes ‡ PROTECTION MEASURES is the COASTLINE ƒ ‡ is ƒ the DISPLAY STATEMENT 66° article of the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic ruled that â € œ All have the right to an environment of human life sound and ecologically balanced, and the duty of the €  defenderâ, including among the fundamental tasks of the Portuguese State in defense of nature and the environment, as well as the need of natural resources (article 9° CRP) in this sense the man has the â œ € duty to protect and improve the environment for the current generation es vindourasâ € µ and  in many paà ses and particularly in Portugal, until the end of the Decade of 80, associated the â € œ protection costeira⠝ writing € is building of defence works (esporà µ s and members) to reduce the risks of exhibition of fronts built is the action of the waves and tide s. not existed a bet in planning which has broader objectives that the reduction of these risks.

The option â œ protection € oâ € , in a global sense, to be environmentally sound and economically comportÃ, should in the perspective that defends itself, include the â € € conservation œ oâ € , â € œ rehabilitation oâ €  â € œ and valorizaà of €  oâ, contemplating µ s action of withdrawal or dorm in especà zones. The Decree-Law 302/90 of September 26 establishes principles whose notice of princà should be addressed through rules to enter planning instruments (Municipal master plans, plan and expansion of ports, the  plan is Classified Protected areas) or establish rules for implementing decree.

Are published by various data sources that statements in the Portuguese coastal tracks there is a generalized retreat of â € œ €  costaâ line which takes the proportion very worrying in some µ s areas.

For your shift Decree-Law nº 309/93 (land use plans of the Coastline) in your article 12⺠reproduces exactly the same pious princà of the said Decree-Law nº 302/90 concerning is long occupation, use and transformation of the land area of protection of the coastline.

Because if you want to keep your accessibility to various port areas in condition security µ, annually are the extraction of µ s millions of meters code º sea sand nozzles and estuÃ.

With few other µ, the vast majority of the volume of extraction was used for civil construction, so I left to move off the coast. Although this occurrence is not new, Fernando Veloso Gomes and Francisco Taveira Pinto in the study under â € œ option the protection for the West Coast Portuguesaâ € , consider this situation very serious because:-its aftermath references (cumulative) make itself felt by the aggravation of µ s erosà on the beaches and dunes. In general the beaches are wasted and even of µ s esporà thus, the accumulated sand is much smaller than there was in recent years.
-The healthy flow of fluvial origin read ³ transported to the ocean represents nowadays a small fracà of which meant there are two or three decades ago, due to construction of hydraulic ulicos potentials and the functioning of the terminal areas of the estuà are like big € œ decantaà â basins of oâ € ;
-Provides nd that these cumulative effects associated with is the reduction of aluviares and process sources by dredging if intensify in years to come, although the ³ your intensity is very involved in the climates of the turmoil that will register annual so the maintenance in medical terms, the current coast line through µ s operation to feed the artificial beaches and other coastal engineering works What is proposed and as the third µ is not of a strategy of protection.

Is ‰ required the adopting of a Poland € œ preventivaâ â € policy  but also € œ curativaâ €  â face is gravity present problems.

So the present initiative is intended as a contribution to the protection of the coastline linking the process of sand when made at 1 km from the coast, to a mandatory reload ³.

This initiative complements itself actually is with the Bill 24/IX of the Socialist Party, which creates the system of surveillance and control of the exercà heat of dredging activity and process of inert.

In constitutional terms and the rules applicable the undersigned Members have the following draft law: Article 1 Subject this law concerns the protection of the coastline through a system of artificial feed.

2-the Government in the framework of the policy Poland protection of the coastline, can extend for duly justified reasons and in function of the particularities of the estuÃ, the limits laid down in Nr. Republic.

Article 3rd. Feed the artificial beaches 1. For the purposes of application of this law the following terms shall have the power of artificial beaches the placement by artificial means of sandy materials at sites immersed or appropriate has is getting a certain profile of sea favorà level is dissipaà the energy of the waves and beach use, simulating µ s natural situation. 2. The origin of the sand for the artificial food should be found in amounts which remain the extraction for the maintenance of navigation channels.
