Justification de la notification d'un recours en matière d'urbanisme

Reasons for notification of a town planning appeal

CE May 15, 2013, Santenoise Association for the Defense of the Natural Environment "Living on the edge of the" wooded arc "", Req. No. 352 308

Reasons for notification of a town planning appeal

The Council of State has held that the simple production of the certificate of deposit of a registered letter informing of the proceeding is sufficient to justify the fulfillment of the obligation of notification of remedies in urban planning provided for in Article R. 600-1 of the Urban Planning Code.
In particular, the High Assembly specified that the commune, whose two permits were attacked, had not challenged before the judge of the first instance the contents of the mail which it had received. Thus, the first judges erred in law - reiterated on appeal - by finding that the applicant association did not establish that it had satisfied the aforementioned obligation on the ground that it had not transmitted to the administrative court the copy of the appeal she had made to the commune.

    CE October 8, 2012 Commune of Lunel, Req.n ° 342423
