The Draft Spatial Planning, Architectural, and Construction Activity Code submitted to the Sector Economy and Economic Policy Committee with the first reading establishes the mandatory submission of a greening project in order to receive a construction permit, countrywide.
The Draft was submitted by Maia Bitadze, elucidating the essence of the initiative: “The rule has been successfully applied in Tbilisi since 2019. The submitted change envisages the recognition of greening projects as an integral part of the construction permit, namely, it regulates that the construction design shall be enclosed with a spatial arrangement and greening project planned for the construction site, which may also envisage the planting and maintenance of the area,” she stated.
The Committee discussed yet another Draft Spatial Planning, Architectural and Construction Activity Code submitted by the Deputy Economic Minister, Nino Enukidze with the first reading.
The Draft simplifies the administrative proceeding related to the modification of urban construction plans approved without the concept, namely, a person willing to modify the planning on their land plot will have the opportunity to modify the urban construction plan without the obligation to develop a concept for the whole settlement.
