"All our registers are public. We will ease the access to the registers, we will upgrade them with new criteria," Zdravkov said. "All certificates that I have issued are published as soon as they enter into force. For these 3 years, a major step has been taken to ensure transparency of administration," the chief architect said, adding that transparency and digitalisation have been a radical change in Architecture and Urban Planning. He further said the amendments to the Municipality of Sofia Urban Planning and Development Act were success as they introduced limitations regarding development parametres and building heights.
"I am very proud that we introduced the rule not to issue building permits before the expropriation procedures have been completed," Zdravkov said. "In 2017 we had over 50,000 square metres of donated land. In 2018 the donated land was 73 thousand square metres. For 2019, the donated land so far is 15,000 square metres," said Sofia’s architect.
