The new Fiesa Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan, which the citizens' initiative is trying to prevent via referendum, is more in tune with the character of Fiesa, and is also more rational given the existing terrain.
The new Fiesa Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan brings the following advantages to the area:
- limited scope of construction, since the new Fiesa Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan allows only 7,435.25 square meters of gross floor area to be covered by new residential developments, while the previous Fiesa-Pacug construction plan anticipates new residential properties to cover a gross surface area of 11,575.82 square meters.
- the number of residential units has been reduced from 57 to 25,
- the planned floor area for the BAMC as the investor remains practically unchanged (the old Detailed Municipal Zoning Plan allows construction of 3,139 square meters of gross floor area, while the new allows 3,178), and the new investor will be required to construct more underground parking spaces, since freeing up parking capacities is crucial for the immediate vicinity,
- the planned projects will be lower in height, more attractive and less intrusive for the environment,
- it anticipates finishing, renovating and constructing all necessary infrastructure in the area concerned,
- it allows the maximum limitation of construction in Fiesa without risking lawsuits from investors who have already obtained building permits under the previous spatial planning document, which is still in force.
In the event of overturning the new Fiesa Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan, we must emphasize that this would effectively enact the previous construction plan, which permits 35% more new residential construction in terms of floor area.
Therefore, the new Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan means more green surfaces for Fiesa, as it anticipates 35% less land to be developed. It is therefore not true that the potential investor would be allowed to construct buildings on a much bigger scale in Fiesa. Overruling the new Municipal Detailed Zoning Plan will not prevent or stop potential construction development in Fiesa, as it would effectively enact the previous spatial planning document.
