“Do you or do you not want the airport Notre-Dame-des-Landes?” Francois Hollande has communicated the issue to be raised at the local consultation on the project.
Francois Hollande said on Friday that the question of the future local referendum on the controversial airport project in Notre-Dame-des-Landes (Loire-Atlantique) would be “Do you or do you not want an Airport at Notre-Dame-des-Landes?” And that if there is no victory, the project would be abandoned. “If those consulted say yes, to the airport, it will be done. If they say no, it will not be done “, assured the Head of State, interviewed on France Inter.
The head of state announced on February 11 the holding of the local referendum, hours after the return of ecologists in government, in order to resolve the “blocking” of the project, strongly disputed in the field and in justice for fifteen years. The proposed airport at Notre-Dame-des-Landes, which dates from the 60s, was revived in the late 90s .
