Parliamentary questions
28 November 1997
E-3831/97
WRITTEN QUESTION by María Sornosa Martínez (GUE/NGL) to the Commission

 Subject: Pego-Oliva Wetland
 Answer(s) 

The Pego-Oliva Wetland has already been brought to the attention of the Commission through Written Question E-1387/96 (1) presented by this Member. This area is the second most important wetland in Valencia and has been declared a special protection area (SPA), in accordance with Directive 79/409/EEC (2) on wild birds. Since 1992, LIFE - Nature has financed measures to conserve its natural wealth. Last year the Commission was informed of the works being carried out by the Pego Municipal Council, which were presumably illegal. It contacted the relevant authorities to inform them that it would suspend its funding of LIFE if the irregularities continued and it recently sent Commission representatives to visit the area.

1.  What conclusions were reached by the Commission after this visit?

2.  What measures does the Commission intend to take to ensure that the Community regulation is complied with?

3.  Is the Commission prepared to initiate infringement proceedings for non-compliance with Article 169 of the EC Treaty, and, if these proceedings have already begun, can the Commission specify what stage they are at?

4.  Will the funds from the Community support framework 94-99 for Spain be used in this area in accordance with the principles of conservation of natural resources as provided for in Directive 92/43/EEC (3) on the conservation of natural habitats?
