Title News Those who wish to install a local wastewater treatment plant or install streets in garden areas will no longer need a construction permit
The Ministry of the Environment has prepared amendments to the construction technical regulation on the documents allowing construction, which, if adopted, will reduce the bureaucratic burden on residents who want to install a local sewage treatment plant, build streets in the areas of amateur gardens or carry out their reconstruction.
“Thousands of people in Lithuania live in garden areas, very often they manage the environment and pave the streets with their own funds. This change will allow the residents of the gardens to abandon redundant formalities when installing or reconstructing local streets. It is very important that it will be easier, faster and cheaper for people to install treatment facilities, as a result of which the environment will be less polluted”, says Minister of the Environment Simonas Gentvilas.
Currently, there are requirements that a construction permit document is required for those who want to install streets in the areas of amateur gardens or to carry out their reconstruction. It is proposed to abandon the construction permit document and construction completion procedures for streets in the areas of amateur gardens.
In order for residents who do not have the opportunity to connect to centralized sewage treatment networks to be able to install local treatment facilities faster and more easily and to improve the ecological condition of residential areas, the draft legal act proposes to waive the construction permit document and construction completion procedures for such structures.
Notes and suggestions “On the construction technical regulation STR 1.05.01:2017 “Construction permitting documents. Completion of construction. Registration and transfer of unfinished building. Suspension of construction. Elimination of the effects of arbitrary construction. Elimination of the consequences of construction based on an illegally issued construction permit” can be submitted until September 21. In the Information System of Legal Acts (TAIS).
