Abstract [en]

In this article, I discuss some aspects of the ge-neral impact of European law on environmental proceedings in Sweden. These aspects have each, to some extent, been highlighted in a controver-sial case about a limestone quarry on the Bal-tic Sea island of Gotland in Sweden, the Bunge case. I use this case to analyze and discuss the encounter between the Habitats Directive and the ability of the Swedish government and the environmental courts, according to the Environ-mental Code, to declare a certain activity permis-sible prior to the commencement of that activity, with a binding effect on the subsequent permit procedure. Second, I discuss whether a system that allows early decisions on permissibility with binding effect might conflict with the basic requirement for access to justice for the public concerned according to EU law and the Aarhus Convention. Third and last, I use the Bunge case to discuss the requirement for timeliness in envi-ronmental proceedings. In this respect, the article also concerns international obligations according to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and the Aarhus Convention
