Association Green Istria

Through the Green Phone citizens reported illegal disposal of harmful materials into the stream in the village of Sovinjak in Buzet.

Namely, this June a part of the county road of approximately 1000 m2 in the village of Sovinjak was repaired.
The County Roads Administration of Istria County, which concluded a contract with Istarske ceste d.o.o. for the performance of works, is in charge of repairing the road, while the locals are saying that a local company from Buzet was also contracted for the performance of works.

Anxious citizens addressed us on the Association’s Green phone yet again, this time due to felling of trees near the Arena.

urban gardens which are located on protected green area vis-a-vis shopping centre Billa will soon become a thing of the past.
That is confirmed by the City of Pula which intends to “arrange” this area by filling earth and rocks from the construction site of the new hospital in Pula.

Via the Green Phone we received a report from a citizen in May, that Hrvatske vode initiated the development of preliminary design of retention and geodetic project in the area of Tupaljski stream and waterfall Sopot, which, of course, concerned the citizens, organisations, biologists and experts.

Namely, that area belongs to the Ecological Network (Natura 2000), in particular to the Areas of conservation important for species and habitats (POVS), code HR2001365 Pazinština, and it is also the habitat of a strictly protected species Veliki vodenjak (Great Crested Newt).

Via the Green Phone of the Association Green Istria we received the inquiries of the citizens regarding the information related to the suppression of undesirable vegetation (weeds) on the gravel paths and walkways of the ‘Monte Zaro’ park in Pula.

Citizens of Pula found a pitiful sight of sawing trees in front of the Social Centre Rojc.

We have previously informed the public about the plans for cutting down the trees because of the construction of the skate park based on a report of the citizens via the Green Phone. We tried to obtain information from the Administrative Department for the Municipal System and Property.

Stabla stoje

Via the Facebook page of Green Istria the citizens sent a video in which it was recorded how the driver of the truck threw the concrete out in the sea in the area of the former military base at Valelunga in Pula!

We recently received three reports via the Green Phone of Green Istria that have a common denominator - it is about crafts for the processing of metals and plastics, which are located in residential areas.
