Gov't Revising Construction Laws
The government has revised all laws governing construction and the protection of monuments, and these will be reorganized into a law on Hungarian architecture, the Minister of Construction and Transport János Lázár announced on his Facebook page earlier this week.
According to Lázár, it is perhaps surprising that a draft of the law has also been submitted for social consultation, but having already sought professionals' opinions on the subject, they would like "the greatest possible social consensus to support the new set of rules."
The minister stated that the government's goal is to encourage "quality architecture" instead of "bureaucratic construction."
"At the same time, we are also tightening the rules so that no building can be built that does not fit in with the townscape in terms of scale and style," Lázár added.
