Analysis of the dark store from the perspective of urban law

Julia Macedo Nogueira Nobre, Jonathan Barros Vita



This article aims to analyze the concept of dark stores and their influence on urban law, identifying the externalities that the company can bring and the possible ways to reduce its effects to the city in which it will be installed, in order to guarantee the compatibility of the socio-economic-environmental development. The deductive method was used, with bibliographic research. Firstly, the concept of dark store was analyzed under the reference system of the economic analysis of the law; after, the statute of the city and the master plan in the defense of urban rights were observed, to verify the influence of the dark store in urban law and examine the rules expressed in the city statute, which influence these companies. The research revealed that dark stores influence urban law, as they cause increase in traffic, noise pollution, saturation of the electricity and telephone infrastructure, increased crime, in addition to a reduction in the value of adjacent properties. The city statute and the master plan analyzed have instruments capable of reducing the negative externalities of the installation of dark stores in the urban environment, such as the neighborhood impact study, the environmental impact study and the environmental zoning.
