Update on the project around Baguai

François Clément also revealed that the Vive garrigue association has filed an appeal with the administrative court against the Scot de Lunel Agglo which allows the development of the area. A dispute suspended since, since negotiations have opened with the intermunicipality. A secret mediation but for which the president of Vive garrigue clarified the framework: « We had 2 meetings and we have already obtained some progress: the natural, agricultural areas and the hydraulic basin would not be developed. In fact, we are looking for a balance and, on this basis, a protocol will be proposed to us, probably by the end of the summer. »
The president of Vive garrigue was very clear regarding the future. He will submit the possible protocol to an extraordinary general assembly and he launched: « If we approve it, we will abandon the litigation. If we reject it, we will resume the action. » to be continued.
