Sustainabile Urban Development, Architecture and Environment

Description

Urban planning is a function of local government units set out in the article 10 of Law No. 8652, dated 31.7.2000 "On the organization and functioning of local government units" This paper will be based on legal analysis that local governments units are facing today, by highlighting the differences between the old and the new legislation for the territory, concerning the new instruments of territorial planning. It is passed from the traditional planning law with rules on architecture of the buildings, which had to do with the protection of legitimate interests related to private property, in a law which does not consist only on rules, but it speaks for planning and development. The effective implementation of this law is closely connected to the legislation for the development of physical and social infrastructure in local level, local taxes and fees and management of immovable property of the LGU. An important concept of the law of the territory, in difference with urban law that quoted the protection of legitimate interests related to private property, is that the new law does not distinguish between private land and state land. This law establishes rules for rational use of land and determines how these rules must be applied, rules that intend to balance public interest with private interests and turn the local authority by a follower of the private initiative in a developing leaders. LGU are responsible and can provide their local power autonomy in function of planning and development of the territory, if they compose their overall planning instruments.

Prishtina, Kosovo

Urban planning is a function of local government units set out in the article 10 of Law No. 8652, dated 31.7.2000 "On the organization and functioning of local government units" This paper will be based on legal analysis that local governments units are facing today, by highlighting the differences between the old and the new legislation for the territory, concerning the new instruments of territorial planning. It is passed from the traditional planning law with rules on architecture of the buildings, which had to do with the protection of legitimate interests related to private property, in a law which does not consist only on rules, but it speaks for planning and development. The effective implementation of this law is closely connected to the legislation for the development of physical and social infrastructure in local level, local taxes and fees and management of immovable property of the LGU. An important concept of the law of the territory, in difference with urban law that quoted the protection of legitimate interests related to private property, is that the new law does not distinguish between private land and state land.
