The decision fell. The administrative justice suspended Tuesday, April 6 in summary, the work of the media village of the Paris-2024 Olympic Games, planned on part of the Georges-Valbon departmental park in Seine-Saint-Denis, according to a decision consulted by the AFP.

The Paris Administrative Court of Appeal suspended part of the environmental authorization issued in November 2020 by the prefect of Seine-Saint-Denis. “The Olympic Works Delivery Company is ordered to instruct its co-contractors so that they cease all work”, she said in her prescription.

Planned for the Aire des Vents area, in the town of Dugny, the media village will accommodate up to 2,000 journalists and technicians during the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The buildings must then be converted into housing in the part of an “eco-district”.

Two associations, the local branch of the National Movement for the Fight for the Environment (MNLE 93) and the Collectif pour le Triangle de Gonesse, lodged a new appeal against this project in February before the Paris Administrative Court of Appeal, competent in litigation related to the Olympic Games-2024.

These organizations, accompanied in their approach by 36 people, residents and users of the park, had doubled this procedure of an interim suspension, which an interim judge approved on Tuesday. The latter considered that the prefectural decree referred to, in the exemption that it grants to the prohibition against attacking protected species, does not meet the provisions of the Environmental Code as it stands.

The Ministry of Ecological Transition and the Olympic Works Delivery Company (Solideo) must each pay the applicants 750 euros.
