Architects, Urban Planners Demand New Round of Consultation on Zagreb City Plan

Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, August 19, 2019 – Five professional associations of architects, urban planners and landscape architects have called on Zagreb City authorities to organise another round of public consultation on the proposed general city plan (GUP).

In a letter to the city administration, the associations said that they have called for amendments due to the “obvious discrepancy between the proposed GUP and the Law on Physical Planning (ZSU) as well as a series of technical irregularities and discrepancies between various part of the plan.”

The architects and urban planners warned that a round of the public consultation held between 31 July and 14 August had not been announced in the physical planning IT system which is a legal requirement.

Recently, Construction Minister Predrag Štromar expressed satisfaction with the great interest of citizens in the public consultation on planned changes to the Zagreb city plan, noting that city services should now analyse the proposals submitted for likely amendment of the proposed changes and then forward the plan to the City Assembly for adoption.

On the other hand, Mayor Milan Bandić dismissed criticism that he was ignoring the opinions of experts and of a general public in connection with the planned changes of Zagreb’s city plan.
