A small advantage for the opponents of Beynac bypass this Thursday in their fight. The highest administrative body, the Council of State, has just admitted in cassation an appeal against the work of the deviation.
A small glimmer of hope for opponents of the road diversion Beynac, Dordogne, Thursday. The Council of State has acknowledged in cassation the appeal lodged by the Sepanso and the defense organization of the Dordogne valley against the decree of the prefecture authorizing the work of the derogation.
*one of the comments
I am amazed that this project has even been suggested let alone agreed to. How is it possible when it is a Unesco World Heritage Site and Nature Reserve?
This exceptional valley with its wonderful, historically important buildings surely must be protected. It is a part of France’s cultural heritage and as such belongs to France, the people of France, and thanks to the internet people all over the world are interested in history, architecture, and sites of special scientific interest. We must not be deprived of the chance to visit this region and appreciate its unique gift.
Economically it simply can’t make sense to destroy or damage this incredible asset.
STOP otherwise this will be the past;

“We remain cautious!”
However, the president of Sepanso, Michel André, remains very cautious. “It is far from a victory.” It is indeed necessary to wait until the Council of State examines the file.
The associations have introduced new elements, including a new number of cars in the center of Beynac village, realized this summer by a private company.
Several professions submitted to the Bordeaux administrative court have been rejected by the prefecture in January since the start of the works.
But this gives a glimmer of hope . Kind regards Pierre
