Bring to light
Within the framework of the application of the "bring to knowledge" (PAC), it is up to the State departments to communicate to the local authorities the elements of assessment on the risks and the riches of which they are aware, so that they can take these elements into account when designing their planning documents.
The law of 7 January 1983 on the division of powers between municipalities, departments, regions and the State had the effect, in accordance with the Urban Planning Code, to entrust to the State the mission of bringing to the knowledge of the mayors the elements of assessment on the risks and the riches of the territories, so that the communities can take these elements into account in the design of their planning documents: municipal map, local town plan (PLU) or land use plan (POS), territorial coherence scheme (SCOT).
There are four types of information to bring to light:
♦ national or special requirements
♦ projects of general interest
♦ all information and documents deemed useful for the revision of the plan.
In the field of archaeology, the regional service of archaeology communicates to the local authorities the list of archaeological entities identified in the territory concerned (informative part) and the list of zones of presumption of archaeological prescription (regulatory portion).
