The “Town and Country Planning (Amending) Law of 2011” and “The “Streets and Buildings Regulation (Amending) Law of 2011”.
The purpose of the Town and Country Planning (Amending) Law is to amend the basic Town and Country Planning legislation, so as to enable any joint owner of a building unit, upon which he or she has an exclusive right of use, to apply for a planning permission, without being necessary to submit the co-signature of the other joint owners of such real property, provided that the development does not affect the comfort or the legitimate interests or rights of the other joint owners.
The amendment of the Streets and Buildings Regulation Law, aims to enable the owner of a part of property, in cases of joint ownership of property, to apply for a planning permission, without the prior co-signature of all the other joint owners of such property. Moreover, the bill provides, for the joint owners, the right to appeal to that application, in cases they consider that their legitimate are affected.
The “Sale of Land (Specific Performance) Law of 2011” was also approved on 14 April 2011. This Law is related to the “town planning amnesty” package which was approved on 24 March 2011.
