Extended deadline for legalization of illegal construction

first_imgBy consensus, the Croatian Parliament decided to extend the deadline for submitting requests for legalization of illegal buildings until June 30, 2018, but noting that on-site inspections should be intensified in order to prevent illegal construction.This is not a new legalization, because this deadline applies only to persons who had the right to submit applications in 2012, when the law came into force, said State Secretary of the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning Dunja Magaš, presenting the final proposal to amend the Law on dealing with illegally constructed buildings.The deadline is extended to June 30, 2018 due to the large number of unresolved cases, but also due to the legalization of as many buildings as possible. Namely, as Maguš said, with yesterday’s 826 thousand requests for legalization, 558 thousand cases have been legally resolved. The state, on the other hand, earned 2016 billion kuna from legalization fees by the end of 1,318, she said.The legal changes also increase the percentage of funds earned from legalization fees for local self-government units from 20 to 30 percent, which MPs also welcomed.In the afternoon, the deputies also supported the final proposal for amendments to the Law on Physical Planning, which harmonizes it with the EU directive and which enables spatial planning in the protected ecological-fishing zone and the continental shelf of Croatia.last_img
