Avignon (84)

The commune of Avignon frequently modifies its PLU

The Local Urban Plan (PLU) of Avignon approved in 2017 has been regularly modified and underwent a major revision in 2018.

Avignon is the largest city in the Vaucluse department and one of the few French cities to have preserved its ramparts and its historic centre. The city's emblematic monuments are the Palais des Papes, which earned it the nickname "City of the Popes", the Rocher des Doms and the Pont d'Avignon. Its many buildings make it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its arts and entertainment festival has made it internationally famous. Avignon was the European Capital of Culture in 2000. There are many students in Avignon, notably thanks to its University and its student district, Agroparc.

The maximum heights allowed in the city centre are set in the Plan de Sauvegarde et de Mise en Valeur (PSMV). The UA and UB zones represent 6% to 7% of the plots in Avignon. The UD and UC zones are in the majority, representing respectively 14% and 27% of the total number of plots in the city. The construction of housing is authorised here.

The major roads surrounding the city centre of Avignon and the Ile de la Barthelasse are among the sites reserved by the city. The Rocade Charles de Gaulle, the Route de Lyon, the Avenue Charles de Gaulle and the Avenue de Tarascon are also included.

24 building permits, mostly for multi-family housing, were recently approved by the city.
