As Poslovni Dnevnik/Suzana Varosanec writes, the spatial plans of the new generation will be created through the new Croatian ePlanovi editor, and the Ministry of Spatial Planning, Construction and State Property is developing this new electronic service.

The ”translation” of old generation plans into new generation plans will be carried out through the service, so that the new software solution and connection with the Croatian ePlans editor module will facilitate the work of professional developers and bring about the standardisation of all spatial planning documentation.

The reforms being undertaken through the ISPU project – Spatial Planning Information System and its modules represent a ”reform storm” in this area, because it will remove the toilsome tasks faces by professional developers, and investors will ultimately know about every single location across the Republic of Croatia for which rules are in force, starting with the question of what may or may not be built and where, and all of it will be available online and be free of charge.

The Croatian ePlans editor is otherwise a web-GIS solution that can be used free of charge by expert spatial plan makers, ie those who have the approval of the Ministry to carry out professional spatial planning work.

“Through the Croatian ePlans editor, all spatial plans across the Republic of Croatia will be created and presented in a standardised way. This will enable investors entering the construction process to very easily get answers to questions such as what can or cannot be built and where, what the building should look like, which body issues special conditions and information regarding procedures for each location in Croatia, including building permits and the like, and the data will be available for free on the ISPU Geoportal,” the Ministry stated.

The Croatian ePlans editor module will enable the much faster and simpler creation of plans, as all official sources will be made totally available to expert drafters, including digital orthophoto maps, layers from the Register of Spatial Units (borders of counties, cities, municipalities and settlements, as well as addresses), always up-to-date digital cadastral plans, other valid spatial plans, as well as all available data from the registers and records of public law bodies.

This entire system was successfully tested in the area of ​​Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, more precisely in Crikvenica, where the spatial plan of the county – the spatial plan of the town and two urban planning plans were ”translated” from the old to the new generation.
