REPORT OF THE EXECUTIVE BOARD OF TUESDAY 18 MARS 2014
The Executive Council of the Community of St. Martin met in plenary on Tuesday 18 March 2014 to 15h, under the presidency of Aline Hanson, President of the Territorial Council of Saint Martin. The elected representatives adopted a deliberation on the launching of the declaration of public utility (DUP) for the acquisition of the plots AV 61 and AV 62 in Cul de Sac and examined several land use applications.
1) - Launch of the declaration of public utility (DUP) for the acquisition of the plots AV 61 and AV 62 in Cul de Sac
The former commune of Saint-Martin has built two works at Cul de Sac, a school and a lifting station; On this occasion, it encroached on two cadastral parcels (AV61 of 1690m2 classified in UG and AV62 of 3810m2 classified in ND), belonging to private owners. In 2006, the commune of St Martin was summoned for "route of facts" by the owners of the two parcels, before the Court of Grande Instance of Basse-Terre. Since that date, both parties have attempted to resolve the case amicably, but the claims of the private parties have always been exorbitant in relation to the damage suffered; In return for a symbolic assignment of the emptied parcels to the euro, the owner family requested a natural zone (ND) decommissioning in a building-type hotel zone (UTb) of the parcel AT 396 with an area of 1.4 hectare.
In response to this situation, the Directorate General of Community Services has proposed to the Executive Council to issue a declaration of public convenience and to refer the matter to the Prefect in order to initiate an investigation to establish the public interest Project, as well as a piecemeal survey.
The Executive Council approved the principle of acquisition by expropriation of the rights of way necessary for the maintenance of the school and the lifting station of Cul de Sac. It also approved the perimeter of the declaration of public convenience and authorized the President to solicit the Prefect for the initiation of a public interest preliminary investigation and a parcel survey.
The appropriations necessary for this operation are entered in the budget of the Community. A deliberation unanimously adopted.
2) - Review of applications for land use or occupation
The Executive Council considered several applications for land use or occupation. Thus, out of eleven requests made by individuals or companies, six were declared favorable because they comply with the provisions of the Land Use Plan. These six favorable requests were approved unanimously by the advisers.
