The 2019 amendment to the Construction Law has necessitated changes to the technical conditions to which buildings and their location must conform. UNFORTUNATELY, WORK ON THE NEW REGULATION INDICATES THAT IT MAY SERIOUSLY HINDER CONSTRUCTION INVESTMENTS.
The new regulations should be in place by September this year, which in turn means that they need to be drafted relatively quickly. HOWEVER, HASTE WITH THIS KIND OF ACTS IS EXTREMELY INADVISABLE, AND THE CURRENTLY PROCEEDING PROJECT CERTAINLY REQUIRES MANY AMENDMENTS.
A number of errors are pointed out by the Polish Association of Developers or the Chamber of Architects of the Republic of Poland.
The problem is both legislative errors and controversial solutions. One of the examples is an attempt to make it more difficult to build apartments with little sunlight.
THE LEGISLATURE INTENDS TO REPEAL THE PROVISION ALLOWING FOR INDEFINITE SUNLIGHT DURATION FOR ONE-ROOM APARTMENTS IN DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENTS. This, in turn, may actually completely block this type of investments in city centers.
Although it is hard to deny the necessity of fighting against various abuses, it is not the same as practically completely blocking the possibility of building one-room flats in city centres.
