New law will protect the Green Areas in Sofia, Bulgaria

The mayor of Sofia, Yordanka Fandakova, has decided to fight for the preservation of the city’s green areas and against the unrestricted building of tall buildings.

The mayor of Sofia, Yordanka Fandakova and the main architect of the city are working together on a law which will regulate the construction of extremely tall buildings. According to Fandakova, the new law will help stop the rampant construction of tall buildings, which appear “like mushrooms”. Through the implementation of proper terminology, for the first time in the city’s history, green areas will be fully protected, no matter in which district of the city they are.

Up until now, through some backdoors in construction law, the building of theoretically infinite buildings was completely legal. Especially the law concerning construction on cross-sections allows for the establishment of buildings with unregulated height. Fixing these weaknesses of Bulgarian law, construction on the city can finally be completely regulated, no matter the construction site’s location.
