Summary title: Petition No 0991/2020 by Gredo Förster (German) on the protection of Dannenhöfer Forest and a Natura 2000 area that can be affected by the extension of the A49 motorway
Petition number: 0991/2020
Name: Gredo Förster
The petitioner calls for stopping the clearing of the Dannenhöfer Forest in view of the extension of the A49 motorway between Stadtallendorf and Homberg-Ohm. He claims that the EU law was not followed at the stage of planning of the motorway. He claims that the A49 extension may be located within a Natura 2000 area and a drinking water protection area and calls for an immediate stop of the works until this can be ascertained. He is of the opinion that such a project exemplifies the failure of his government to respond appropriately to the threats posed by the climate crisis and the extinction of species.
