Controversial biodiversity draft law ratified

An environment ministry-sponsored biodiversity draft law was ratified in Parliament on Thursday, setting a one-hectare minimum for construction in land tracts located within “Natura” programme protected regions, and effective as soon as the relevant law is published in the Government Gazette.

However, a parcel of land of at least one acre in size (minimum 4,000 square metres) can still be issued a building license, even if it's within a Natura zone.

A presidential decree on the construction of buildings outside town planning zones issued in 1985 provides that buildable lots should have a 25-meter-long façade adjacent to a “public street” or a 45-meter-long façade that is adjacent to international, national motorways, or provincial, municipal and community streets.

A new presidential decree will have to be issued now to define the term “public street”.
