DRAFT RESOLUTION ‡ is ƒ N. º 79/XI/1. ª RECOMMENDS to the GOVERNMENT that the ƒ 1 Group DRAFT RESOLUTION ‡ is ƒ N. º 79/XI/1. ª RECOMMENDS to the GOVERNMENT that ƒ allows you to INSTALL ‡ is the ƒ of a NEW SUBESTAà ‡ à ƒ ‰ in the ELECTRIC SAFETY MONSANTO FOREST PARK the Monsanto forest park is one of the most important green areas County and the Metropolitan area of Lisbon , playing roles µ s ³ gicas, paisagà ecological features and recreational and leisure are fundamental to the quality of the urban environment and life of µ s population. Your recognition of the importance and the need to ensure that your self and the valorizaà made the controversial powers to constrain Forest Regime ticos Total, already since 1938, giving it the status of a non aedificandi. Also the Municipal master plan (PDM) of Lisbon classifies the Park and lemon trofes zones as «Ã  green areas of protection o», not allowing action to edificaà and urban intervention. However, over the years, the Park was being subject to several µ s intervention that contribuà ram to shred in white descontà nuos and also reduce your perà metro. Today, they remain several threats that violate white balance ecological ³ and panache of quality enjoyment by the population of µ Park. This being an area classified for protection, these µ s intervention have relied on the complicity of several Governments through the invocation of an abstract public interest to create other µ is law, 2 allowing the advancement of works, equipment or access viable rivers whose public interest is extremely questionable and the existence of alternative location very plausÃ. One of the latest works envisaged that threatens the Park is the deployment of a new subestaà of electrical energy safety of 220/60 kV, in a area of 5305 m2 within the metro perà Monsanto forest park, entered in land belonging is Municipal Chamber of Lisbon (CML). Once the project comes into conflict with the regulation of Municipal master plan of Lisbon, the previous Government decided, by resolution of the Council of Ministers Nr 51/2009, of 17 June, proceed to the partial suspension of the same for a period of two years, Pearl for another, in order to change the classification of this area for action enable the construction of this new SubestaÃ. Also the Ministry of economy and innovation, stated, through the Decree nr 18433/2009, of 29 June 2009, â € œ public utility of the transfer of the domestic domain to the State and municipal afectaà is public purpose of construction and exploitation of Subestaà of Zambujal and € acessosâ ¦ â €  , allowing thus the ownership in land for the start-up of the works concerned. In August 2009, is concluded the Protocol between the CML and the energy Network National policies-REN for a long occupation of the land, acting through the Proposal 54/2010, approved the February 12, â œ € expropriaà of the friendly velâ €  in favour of REN. At the moment, is going on in the national forest Authority, under the tutelage of the Ministry of agriculture, Rural development and fisheries, is desafectaà a dossier of the Total Forestry Scheme 6272m2 for the installation of this SubestaÃ, while awaiting mandatory opinion ³ River of CCDR-LVT, which are ³ ³ s will be held after the conclusion of the procedure of change of the PDM. The left bloc considers inadmissà that the Government, by way of several Ministry rivers, enable the installation of a new Subestaà of electrical safety at Monsanto forest park, using the figures of partial suspension of the PDM, the Declaration of public utility of the project and desafectaà of total forest scheme to counter the legal instruments in force aimed at protecting the environment , order the territory by ³ River and promote the quality of life of the populace µ s. 3


Even more incompreensà vel is this shot of µ s position when not held any valuation of environmental impact assessments (EIA) of the project, as stipulated in paragraph # 3, nea  b) of annex II, of the Decree-Law n° 69/2000., on May 3, as amended by Decree-Law Nr. 197/2005, of 8 November. The AIA would be fundamental to evaluate the impacts on the environment, landscape and µ s conditions of use of the Park caused by this new installation, how to study alternative µ s location with minor impacts. It should be noted that the â € œ location of new subestaà was escolhidaâ €  â € œ only on the basis of the technical and environmental studies performed by REN â € “ mains power, National S.A. indicated the location in the parish of Saint Francis Xavier as the most adequadaâ € , explains the Ministry of the environment the question No 539/XI/° 1 ' St of Left block. Choosing the best location to install the Subestaà should therefore derive from conducting the procedure of EIA. Allow the installation of this Subestaà in the Monsanto forest park, especially with studies that support this option correctly the location vis-à-vis other alternatives could, as well as their environmental and social impacts, means a cedà of blind REN interests at the expense of self and valorizaà of µ s function Park environmental and social These values should be undoubted and intocÃ, as actually is establish the legal instruments that currently protect the construction and urban intervention. As correctly warned the provider of justice respect is deployment of this project in the Park, you need to take into account â € œ the cumulative effect of multiple operation µ s urbanà sticas successively undertaken in an area that, supposedly, should remain a ³ lume ". The block that Left considers that the study of µ s alternative location for the installation of this SubestaÃ, in order to respect the provisions of the Forest Regime overall, the classification of this area of PDM and does not further a amputaà of 5,305 m2 in metro perà Monsanto forest park , the green lung of the city of Lisbon and an ecological area ³ fundamental logic in regional terms and of great importance for the enjoyment of µ s population. Otherwise, piece the piece, the park being slashed and reduced in their limits, with the complicity of the Government gives the nod to your various µ s intervention in this area in disregard for legal instruments that currently protect so that fulfil its function µ s social and environmental. 4 Thus, under the wrapping µ s constitutional and regulations applicable, the Parliamentary Group of the left bloc proposed µ and Assembly of the Republic to recommend to the Government that: 1) Revoke the resolution of the Council of Ministers Nr 51/2009, of 17 June, which decides the partial suspension of the Municipal master plan of Lisbon in order to change the classification of  «Ã  green areas of protection o» of land owned by the Monsanto forest park, for the installation of the Subestaà of Zambujal and access; 2) Revoke the Order Nr 18433/2009, of 29 June, the Ministry of economy and innovation, that decides the public utility of the transfer of the domestic domain to the State, municipal and consequent afectaà is public purpose of construction and exploitation of Subestaà of Zambujal and access, of land belonging to Monsanto forest park; 3) does not allow desafectaà of 6272 m2 of land Monsanto forest park subject to Total Forest scheme for the installation of the Subestaà of Zambujal and access; 4) promotes the valuation procedure the Environmental impact of this project is to study and analyze location µ s alternatives, not allowing the same install at Monsanto forest park.
