Planning and timescale

We shall apply for the initiation of a special plan by the rural municipality Lüganuse. The type of this plan is the most correct and clear pursuant to law in order to ensure the mapping and engagement of the interests of the community in the best possible way.

 

The special plan of the local government will be prepared in two stages. In the first stage, the possible locations of the complex will be compared and analysed and the most suitable one will be selected. In the second stage, a more specific solution will be developed, e.g. the number of buildings, their exact location in the planning area, and other such.

The special planning process will include a strategic assessment of environmental impact with regard to both the potential locations and the overall impact of the production unit to be built. An environmental analysis will also be conducted with regard to the combined impact with other industries, which is particularly important in Kohtla-Järve.

According to current plans, the complex would start operation in 2026 at the earliest.
