In turn, the 51 communes of Lieuvin Pays d’Auge are tackling the thorny question of the objective of zero net artificialization (ZAN) soils by 2050. In Cormeilles, Monday November 6, the inhabitants of Asnières, Bailleul-la-Vallée, Cormeilles, Fresne-Cauverville, Morainville-Jouveaux, Saint-Pierre-de-Cormeilles and Saint- Sylvestre-de-Cormeilles were invited to learn about the objectives and timetable of the new local intercommunal town planning plan, work on which has just begun.
“This project aims to determine the town planning rules for the area for the next 10, 15 years and to define how the area will continue to develop while consuming less space,” says Gary Bailleul, town planner at the Géostudio firm. and mandated by the Lieuvin Pays d’Auge Community of Communes (CCLPA) to support elected officials until 2026. On the stage of the Cormeilles theater, in front of around fifty elected officials and residents, the expert details the legislative context, and the ZAN, which arouses fears among landowners.
In their sights, the potential loss or gain of profits for some, whose land could become an agricultural, natural or wooded zone, while others fear the concentration of homes on small areas, the explosion in the cost of land and call for better thinking about mobility or call for focusing efforts on maintaining current hedges and spaces.
“I am an individual, I do not have the right to speak and I do not have the right to decide what I am going to do with my land,” said a resident. “What about agriculture? “, asks another: “The most important thing is to know how much land today is disappearing every day. » A resident who recently settled in Asnière adds: “I have been here for three years and I am frightened, I have seen the landscape change, hedges leveled, land turned over. »
Two months of investigations in 2026
“You have the opportunity to express yourself,” the expert repeated several times, detailing the timetable. “The CCLPA is committed to holding at least 7 consultation meetings” throughout the development of the project and in particular during the construction of the development and sustainable development plan, which will run through 2024, or even at the time the creation of the written regulation which will serve as a reference for the examination of future real estate projects, in 2025. Without forgetting, in 2026, the two months of investigations which will precede the approval of the text.
But, reminds the expert, it will also be possible to express a concern or an expectation at any time, thanks to the dedicated address [email protected] or, in an observation book available at the CCLPA headquarters.
To better involve residents in the construction of this new regional planning policy, participatory workshops are also organized. “The idea is to think together about the improvements that we need to make to our facilities and our equipment or even our mobility,” summarizes Gary Bailleul.
Mobility, a black spot in the sector, is often at the heart of discussions. “For our young people looking for work, there is nothing, if they don’t have a car or parents to drop them off, they can’t work,” slips a resident. “A mobility plan is in progress with neighboring intermunicipalities, notably Bernay and Roumois”, reures Gary Bailleul, “the PLUi will commute with this plan so that it is coherent”.
This PLUi project concerns 51 municipalities, which led the CCLPA to divide the territory into six sectors. To find the distribution and dates of the next public meetings, a dedicated space is made available on the website of the community of communes.
