Proposal of the Ombudsman for the completion of the process for establishing public space networks

Description

Following a series of complaints related to the characterisation of roads and the ineffective outcome of such cases, the Ombudsman recorded the main issues identified with regard to: a) lawfulness of building permits related to the lack of public space networks within city boundaries not having City Plan and b) the subsequent illegal occupation of public space. The Ombudsman, with its intervention to the Ministry of Environment and the Decentralised Administrations, called for the immediate processing of actions in cooperation with the competent departments of the local authorities. The purpose was to examine the possibility of legislating on the obligation of municipalities to define the public space networks without delay, giving an effective solution to this legislative malfunction constituting maladministration. The Authority pointed out that this legislation will significantly release the burden of a number of difficult cases pending before courts or the administrative bodies. However, despite the Ombudsman’s intervention, the issue has not been resolved and a new complaint has been filed in 2016.
