Land use plan (zone prohibition)

Land use plan (zone prohibition)

This LAP refers to the land use plan and analyses the legal requirements for building a localised hydrogen production facility (including potential zone prohibition), identifies the authority responsible for delivering the land use permit, gives an estimate of the time needed to change the land use plan, and finally highlights if the permit process is uniform throughout the country.
 
a - What are the main regulations/requirements regarding land use plans for building a hydrogen production facility (e.g. permitting regime, agreement)?
b - Are there specific requirements or zone prohibitions for building a hydrogen production facility in the land use plans?
Which is the authority responsible for delivering the land use permit ?
Is there a uniform permit process at local level throughout a country? (uniform interpretation?)
If needed, what is required and how much time does it take to change the land use plan?
Is it a barrier? Yes
Type of Barrier Structural barriers
Assessment Severity
1
Assessment Same as Centralised production of H2. The hydrogen production unit is considered as a chemical facility regardless of the technology, the power or the hydrogen storage capacity. Any building site for this purpose need a land use compatibility report for industrial use.

The ground parcel to install the hydrogen production unit is limited to the ones eligible for this activity. There is no difference between SMR (Steam Methane Reforming) and electrolysis, and the emissions and operation of both processes for production of inorganic gasses as hydrogen are radically different..
