Skrastiņš & Dzenis has successfully represented a client in Administrative court in a dispute over a permit for B category’s polluting activities.

3 April, 2018

Skrastiņš & Dzenis client, a coal briquette manufacturer which products are highly recognized and demanded in Great Britain, had to postpone the construction of a new manufacturing site due to being involved in a dispute over a permit for B category’s polluting activities.

Our client intended to build a new coal briquette manufacturing site in Latvia and, thus, obtained a permit for B category’s polluting activities. The owner of adjacent plot of land appealed the issuance of the permit on the grounds that such our client’s economic activity will pollute the adjacent plot of land with coal dust, manufacturing noise and waste. Consequently, a motion was brought to the court by plaintiff arguing that the permit has been issued unlawfully.

The Administrative court adjudicated the case for more than a year, during the litigation process our attorneys-at-law provided court with written explanations and successfully defended our client’s position in a court.

As a result of more-than-a-year long litigation process the court recently delivered a judgment favourable to our client indicating that the permit has been issued legitimately.
