Construction of Three New Fazana Hotels Planned, Locals Displeased

As Morski writes, there could be three more new Fazana hotels constructed within a distance of 200 metres. The third hotel is planned on a municipal plot spanning 2,200 square metres located on the very waterfront. That plot is set to on sale next year at a starting price of 1,200,000 euros.

”SDP councilors are the ones who bear full moral responsibility for these apartments and hotels that will irrevocably change everything that makes us love Fazana today,” said opposition councilor Lidija Udovicki.

A few days ago, we reported that two new Fazana hotels with a total capacity of up to 350 beds are planned to be built on the very waterfront, but it was established that this was incomplete information. Readers of the local Istra24 portal warned that, after the latest changes to the spatial plan and right in the centre of the waterfront, the construction of another hotel which would be 15 metres high and with a capacity of 75 beds was planned.

This allegation about the existence of the third plot on which the hotel is planned, was also confirmed by the mayor of Fazana himself, Radomir Korac.

”Next to Badel is a municipal plot which spans 2,200 square metres in total. In the earlier plan, there was an activity called K1, which is a market or something very similar. However, we estimated that there was no place for a market there. The sixth amendment adopted by the municipal council was also marked T1, which is a hotel,” Korac went on to explain.

The plot will go on sale next year at a very high price of 550 euros per square metre, and Korac expects that there will be a huge interest in that plot as well, and that it could achieve a higher price than this one in the tender. In the calculation, the starting price for a plot of 2,200 square metres would be the aforementioned 1,200,000 euros.

That would mean that, on a mere 200-metre stretch, Fazana would have three new hotels in the near future: one boasting 195 beds owned by Aleksandar Dzombic, one of 75 which would be mostly on the municipal plot, and a third, boasting 150 beds, which would also be on a municipal plot that will soon go on sale for at least two million euros.

”Six changes to the spatial plan in a very small area next to the old town and on the first row to the sea, enabled the construction of as many as 120 apartments and three new Fazana hotels. I’d like to point out that all SDP councillors voted for this megalomaniacal and devastating plan without any discussion. They’re the ones who bear the full moral responsibility for all these apartments and hotels that will radically and irreversibly change everything that makes us love Fazana today. The entire opposition voted against these plans,” said Udovicki in protest.

”When looking into the minutes of the aforementioned session, it’s evident that the SDP councillors didn’t participate at all in the discussion on any of the changes to the plan that are evidently and extensively in favour of the investors,” she added.

”Many key things were agreed upon and then changed behind the scenes. The public debate didn’t accept the peoples’ remarks on the oversising of these hotel projects, but the numerous and extravagant demands of the company “Terra-Rex”, represented by Nebojsa Dzombic, the brother of Aleksandar Dzombic, were readily adopted. For example, one such request concerned the closure of an unclassified road leading to what is currently a car park. Dzombic cited the need to secure and close the whole area for himself in order to develop the tourist complex,” concluded Lidija Udovicki critically.
