Who is affected by TAP’s land easement and acquisition process?

Land register (cadastre) update determines which landowners and land users are affected by TAP.

TAP needs access to the pipeline corridor which is approximately 52 metres wide in Greece and Albania, and between approximately 22 and 26 metres wide in Italy.

If a land plot lies within this corridor or on the territory identified for TAP’s permanent and temporary above-the-ground facilities (compressor stations, block valve stations, worker camps, etc.), it will most likely be affected by TAP.

As one of the first steps in the LEA process, TAP’s contractors update existing information on the ownership and use of all land parcels affected by the project. Registers of land ownership and use are known as ‘cadastres’. This process aims to establish a detailed and comprehensive ‘cadastral map’, based on surveys and the examination of existing land registers.

During these steps TAP needs to answer the following questions:

  • Which land parcels are affected by TAP? 
  • Where are they located? 
  • Who owns and uses this land?

The cadastral update is currently underway in Greece and Albania and is planned to start soon in Italy.

To find out more about the cadastre work in each country, please read one of the country sub-pages.

 

Who will be affected by TAP’s land easement and acquisition process in Italy?

The land register (cadastre) update in Italy will aim to answer these questions:

  • Which land parcels are affected by TAP? 
  • Where are they located? 
  • Who owns and uses this land?

In Italy, those with a land parcel within the pipeline corridor (26 metres, reduced to 22 metres where possible) are considered to be affected by the TAP land easement and acquisition process.

The LEA process and associated cadastral activities have not yet started in Italy. We will publish new information on this page as soon as it is available.
