The process of building, permissions and construction in Slovakia is currently very complicated and subject to many regulations. To help citizens understand the permit process and explain their rights if they feel affected by a construction project, Bratislava city council has created the post of construction ombudsman. The first person to hold this position is Jaroslav Pavlovič.
“We need somebody who will fight for the rights of people in terms of construction processes,” said Bratislava Mayor Matúš Vallo, when introducing the first ombudsman on Friday, January 31, as cited by the TASR newswire, adding that Pavlovič has the authority and a detailed understanding of all these processes.
