France - Fire Risk in Upper Corsica - France

Risk prevention plans (RPPs) are the State's key risk prevention instrument. Their objective is the control of development in areas exposed to a major risk.

For natural PRPs, the Environmental Code defines two categories of areas (L562-1): hazard-prone areas and areas not directly exposed to hazards but on which measures may be provided to avoid non- Aggravate the risk. Depending on the level of the hazard, each zone is subject to an opposable regulation. The regulations generally distinguish three types of zones:

1- zones of prohibition of construction, known as "red zones", where the level of hazard is high and the general rule is the prohibition of building;

2- "prescribed zones", known as "blue zones", where the level of hazard is average and projects are subject to requirements adapted to the type of issue;

(3) areas not directly exposed to risks but where constructions, works, developments or agricultural, forestry, craft, commercial or industrial operations could aggravate risks or cause new ones, subject to prohibitions or prescriptions (see article L562-1 of the Environment Code).
