It is among our duties to assess strategies, programmes and development plans for counties and micro-regions within regions of great importance, and also the planning by laws.
There are 5 counties and 470 settlements where we assess these documents to safeguard nature conservation and landscape protection interests.
The Directorate is involved in different phases of the elaboration of these development plans:
- At the commencement of planning we provide data and information on the nature conservation and landscape protection aspects, as well as on our plans and intended measures. Particularly if the given settlement includes any of the following features: protected areas and those ones proposed for protection; ex lege objects, structures and areas; sensitive natural areas, Natura 2000 areas; units of the National Ecological Network, and individual landscape assets. We already make recommendations on the graphic representation the corresponding data, and other issues, as well as requirements concerning each category.
- Before approval of planning by laws and development plans, we assess these documents from nature conservation point of view. We assess if the required and recommended aspects are considered and included, and if future developments might cause damage in nature or in the landscape. It is also scrutinized if the zones and categories are in line with the legislation on nature conservation and landscape protection, and with national, and county level development plans.
- In case of disagreement, we participate in the negotiations, where we propose alternatives without compromising nature conservation interests
- On request, we provide preliminary assessment on intended changes, and can recommend alternative solutions e.g. the most favourable track of cables, pipelines that are most favourable from nature conservation and landscape protection point of view.
