Event Title

Village law in Turkey with recent changes

Session

Law

Description

The political power paved the way for the transformation of villages into neighbourhoods with the Metropolitan Law enacted in 2004. All villages within the borders of the Metropolitan Province became neighbourhoods with this change and the neighbourhood was added to their names instead of the village. Villages were made parishes, but this change brought with it great controversy because the status of the village and the status of the neighbourhood contained very different economic and legal differences. With this change, already declining agricultural and livestock activities were further reduced. Seeing this, the political power has now taken the first step of quietly returning from this practice, and the regulation on the status of villages in the bag Law No. 7254 was published in the Official Gazette dated October 16, 2020. According to this regulation, villages and settlements that have been converted into neighbourhoods associated with metropolitan cities can move to the status of rural neighbourhood’s, provided that they apply. But neither the opposition nor its interlocutors knew about such an important event.

In this article, the village law concerning village or rural areas is discussed within the framework of the new amendments and its positive and negative aspects are examined in the context of the cause-and effect relationship.
