Amendment on the demolition of illegal constructions does not pass

Parliament has failed to pass several bills recently, one being the draft amendment by Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) MPs Ľudovít Kaník and Viliam Novotný on illegal constructions.

Parliament has failed to pass several bills recently, one being the draft amendment by Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) MPs Ľudovít Kaník and Viliam Novotný on illegal constructions.

The two SDKÚ politicians proposed to demolish illegal or “black”, constructions especially on the land of other people, if the owner of the plot asks for it. Thus, the Construction Act will not change substantially, the SITA newswire wrote. The amendment was meant to limit and stop the spreading of illegal construction. The only exception was meant to be the plumbing, power wiring and other inevitable networks. According to the proposal, a due Construction Office should have decided on the abolition of the black construction within 30 days after a request was delivered. If the construction was not to be abolished by the builder within 30 days after the verdict is issued, the Construction Office – i.e. municipality – would demolish it within 60 days, at the cost of the builder. If the office failed to demolish the construction, it would have to pay €100 for every month after the original deadline.

The amendment did not passed its second reading on September 24, together with Kaník’s draft amendment on social benefits for children of parents in material need who work, or have worked recently. Nor did three draft amendments by independent MP Alojz Hlina, concerning public water
Systems, compensations of forest plots and the National Health Information System, the TASR newswire wrote.
