URBAN PLANNING: Choice of building materials: the COM could impose standards


The community could impose new standards and choices of materials, for example a minimum sheet thickness or a certain profile at the level of the roofs. 

It is authorized to do so because it has the construction-housing competence.

If they legislate in this area, a person who wants to build a house will have to meet these standards when applying for a building permit. These obligations would only be valid in Saint-Martin.

In addition, the State will publish at the end of March a construction vademecum which is produced following a Cerema mission. This mission consisted in seeing the materials and construction methods that allowed roofs and houses to resist better than others.
