Precautionary principle and cancellation of planning decisions relating to the implementation of mobile telephone relay antennas

It follows from the provisions of Articles 1 and 5 of the Environmental Charter and Article L. 110-1 of the Environmental Code that the precautionary principle applies to activities that affect the environment in conditions likely to harm the health of the populations concerned. An applicant can therefore usefully argue, in support of the annulment of a town planning decision relating to the installation of mobile telephone relay antennas, that the precautionary principle protected by Article 5 of the The environmental charter would have been disregarded on the grounds that the radio fields emitted by the antennas would harm human health.
