The Environment Section is integrated into the Department for Protection and Territorial Planning. It can be used to begin formal procedures relating to the rural environment, authorisation for activities, whether permanent or temporary, protection of environmental laws, etc.
Within this Section management tasks are carried out in the municipality’s areas of greatest natural interest: Sierra de Oltà, Salinas, Sierra de Toix, etc. as well as infrastructures which are located in rural or natural areas (parks, areas protected because of their flora, etc.).
The urban environment also plays a part in the section’s work remit, as it carries out duties relating to acoustic or atmospheric conditions or relating to energy consumption.
