Question for written answer P-003509-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Monika Vana (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Environmental impact assessment for the construction project in Fertőrakós on the Hungarian bank of the Neusiedlersee (Fertő tó)

There are plans for a leisure and tourism centre with 880 parking spaces, 794 mooring berths, a 100-room hotel, a campsite, sports grounds and a motel on a 52-hectare site in Fertőrakós on the Hungarian bank of the Neusiedlersee. Some 8 000 cars per day can be expected. This will result in the loss of reed beds and the sealing of 13.6 hectares of land, which currently acts as a carbon sink.

The construction project would lead to a considerable increase in traffic in the vicinity of the lake on both the Hungarian and the Austrian sides.

The leisure and tourism centre will be in the cross-border Fertő-Hansag National Park, an area which is protected by the provisions of Natura 2000 and by the Habitats and Birds Directives.

1. Does the Commission consider the Fertőrakós construction project to be covered by the terms of the Espoo Convention?

2. Does the Commission consider that an environmental impact assessment in a cross-border context should be carried out by Austria and Hungary, in accordance with Directive 2014/52/EU?

3. How will the Commission respond if Hungary is found to be in breach of Directive 2014/52/EU with this project?
