The Government of the Republic of Croatia sent the Draft Law on Unrated Construction Land to the second parliamentary reading.
Minister of State Property Mario Banožić emphasized its importance for investment activity, especially in tourism and camps, and reminded that there are 76 camps in Croatia today, with an area of more than 14 million square meters. These camps were subject to the transformation of social enterprises during which the facilities were estimated, but not more than 6 million square meters of tourist land around them.
Banožić singled out a better definition of the terms of the building plot of a hotel, tourist resort and buildings, which are of great importance for the regulation of property relations and law enforcement, and the final proposal extended the deadline for the preparation of geodetic studies.
"We are actively working despite the situation with the coronavirus. The draft law on unrated construction land was sent to the second parliamentary reading. This law is absolutely necessary and will be enforceable, high quality, fair and reform. We analyzed all the proposals made in the first reading and held a series of meetings. We put the emphasis on the concepts of tourist resort and buildings and hotel building plots. The law will resolve long-standing property and legal relations and regulate the status of land that is exempt from conversion and privatization and that tourist companies have used for 20 years free of charge.”Banožić pointed out.
With an important change, the Minister also pointed out that it is unequivocally prescribed that in the case of further construction in that camp, a building permit can be obtained for the area of the existing camp and in the case when the spatial plan in that area envisages some other purpose. to obtain building permits for the camp.
It is also regulated that the content of the lease agreement in the camp on the tourist land will be prescribed by a decree, and the procedure for the implementation of the study, which has been simplified, is more precisely prescribed.
In the case of an administrative dispute, the administrative court has jurisdiction to independently determine the facts and other procedures, and companies that have missed the deadline for submitting applications for concessions for tourist land under the old law are allowed to initiate proceedings to resolve property relations under the new the law.
