A draft amendment to the construction law, which assumes the introduction of the possibility of building houses up to 70 square meters without a permit, has been submitted to the Parliament. The MPs submitted amendments and sent the solution back to the committee.
The Sejm deals with draft laws concerning key solutions included in the Polish Order. This includes: about changes in the tax system, but also about changes in the construction law, which will allow the construction of houses up to 70 square meters without a permit. During the second reading, amendments were tabled, which resulted in the act being again referred to the work of the Parliamentary Infrastructure Committee and the Local Government and Regional Policy Committee.
100 meters instead of 70
One of the amendments submitted by the Confederation assumes that the new construction law would allow the construction of houses with an area of not 70 square meters, but as much as 100 square meters without permits. Dobromir Sośnierz said that this is a good idea, so why limit yourself to 70 sq m
Interestingly, some experts have previously claimed that even a house with a base of 70 square meters can actually be much larger. Lawyers of the Polish Association of Developer Companies – which may be very disturbed by the new regulations – claimed that in fact the pond in its original form allowed for the creation of a house with an area of 200 square meters.
Several houses on one plot
The amendments also included those submitted by the Left and the Civic Coalition. They concern, among others: clarifying whether several houses can be built on one plot without permission. The committee will consider the tabled amendments this week.
