The scope of a Project Information Sheet was defined by the legislator in the Act of 3 October 2008 on sharing information about the environment and its protection, public participation in environmental protection and environmental impact assessment. A completed Project Information Sheet should contain such information as:
- type, features, scale and location of the investment
The type of project should be indicated (in accordance with the Regulation of the Regulation of the Council of Ministers of November 9, 2010 on projects significantly affecting the environment (Journal of Laws of 2016, item 71)) and the most important technical parameters (including dimensions, diameters, power or production capacity). Another important point is the exact location (plot and area numbers are given) and the location relative to the existing infrastructure. Indicate the type of project (in accordance with the Regulation of the Council of Ministers of 9 November 2010 on projects that may significantly affect the environment (Journal U. of 2016 item 71) and the most important technical parameters (among others dimensions, diameters, power or capacity). Another important point is the exact location (plot and area numbers are given) and the location relative to the existing infrastructure. In addition, the scale of the investment, the use of natural resources (soil, water) and the planned start and end date of the project should be indicated.
- area of occupied property, construction structure, as well as the current method of its use and vegetation cover of the property:
The data must contain information on the area of the property, development area for the planned construction facilities and their dimensions, including the percentage of the plot area that will be excluded from the biologically active area. Another important point is to describe the vegetation around the property and to indicate whether, for example, tree felling is planned.
We describe the technology that will be used as part of the investment.
- possible variants of the project:
It is necessary to inform about the possible investment variants and which option will be the best in terms of environmental protection.
- solutions protecting the environment:
Very important information of key importance from the point of view of issuing environmental decisions. We present actions, technical and technological solutions that will ensure that the impact of the investment will not exceed certain thresholds.
- type and planned amount of substances or energy released into the environment while using environmental protection solutions:
We provide information on the method and amount of generated waste, sewage, drained rainwater, as well as planned devices emitting noise or pollution into the air.
- possible cross-border environmental impact:
We indicate the possible impact on the environment beyond the national borders.
All forms of nature conservation in the vicinity of the investment, as well as ecological corridors, should be indicated. The impact of the project on the above-mentioned protected areas is also presented.
- projects being implemented and already implemented, located in the area where the project is planned:
We describe and analyze the location of the investment, as well as its links with other current and ongoing projects. We take into account whether it is the same type of investment, distance from the proposed investment, accumulation of impacts from several sources in the indicated area or the scope of impact.
- risk of a serious failure or a natural and construction disaster:
Information on the project in terms of potential major industrial accidents, construction and environmental disaster.
- expected amounts and types of generated waste and their impact on the environment:
We provide information on the waste generated and its quantities, including waste codes.
