Adam Teva V’Din calls for recall of Tel Hashomer housing plans

Arguing that plans for treating contaminated land at the Tel Hashomer army base site are insufficient, Adam Teva V’Din (Israel Union for Environmental Defense) demanded on Monday that housing construction plans for the area be reconsidered.

In a petition to Tel Aviv District Court on Monday morning, the organization specifically argued against promoting the construction plans through the country’s National Housing Sites Planning Committee (the "Vatmal"), which serves to accelerate housing projects. The writers demand that the court counter the government’s decision to declare the Tel Hashomer site a preferred housing project within the committee, and instead, transfer the plans to the traditional, more stringent planning route designated by the country’s Planning and Building Law.
