Reconstruction: Authorizations are not systematic


After Irma, the CPM authorized the owners whose property was damaged to request a DPI, a prior declaration for reconstruction after Irma (DPI) instead of a building permit (PC) to facilitate the process.

This applies to strictly identical reconstructions and in order to secure the home. Since the end of October, dozens of DPIs have been deposited with the urban planning department of the COM and submitted to the executive council. 140 files have already been examined by elected officials and 42% of them have obtained a favorable opinion.

On the other hand, 57 DPI were declared as “inadmissible” because the planned works require a building permit. The latter turn out to be more ambitious in the end. The owners take the opportunity to make modifications or even make extensions. This is why DPI is refused. This concerns both residential houses and businesses located in risk areas or not. In 17 other files, the COM asked to provide additional documents, such as the syndic's authorization or a copy of the initial building permit. Finally, the executive council chose to stay the proceedings in 6 requests for house reconstruction located in Quartier d'Orléans, Sandy Ground, Grand Case and Cul de Sac.
