Public concerned (neighbours) – The ambition of the Swedish Environmental Code is to introduce a uniform and generous definition of “the public concerned”. Each person who can suffer any damage or nuisance from an activity – if the risk for such an impact concerns a legally protected interest and is not merely theoretical or insignificant – shall have the possibility to appeal a permit for that activity.
