Tesla's revised plans for the construction of Giga Berlin will be available for public review from June 18 to July 17. The public will have the opportunity to file objections to changes in the project within two months. The decision on whether a repeat public hearing is necessary will be made only after all objections have been received.
Tesla recently changed Giga Berlin’s design as part of the current approval process and made some changes to the factory design, including the addition of a battery factory. The State Department for the Environment (LfU) decided that the scale of the change required re-participation of the public. The agency has verified the completeness of the amended application documents and announced the project will be shown to the public starting Friday, June 18, 2021.
Anyone can view the documents at the LfU branch in Frankfurt (Oder), in the Grünheide, at the Spreenhagen office in Erkner, in the Oder-Spree in Beeskow, and on the Internet. There will be complete application documents as well as emission projections for air pollutants, odors and noise, a specific article on the Species Protection Act, a special article on the Water Framework Directive, vibration reports, and other reports and statements.
The public has the opportunity to file objections to changes in the project within two months from the start of its showing, which ends on August 16, 2021. All objections raised earlier remain in effect. After the expiry of the time limit for filing objections, the licensing authority decides whether a re-discussion of the objections raised is necessary.
