New Development Mandate to be made for Kyrenia District

Hasan Findik, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, stated that the Kyrenia 2nd District Temporary Mandate valid from November16, 2006 to December 31, 2007 would not put a complete stop to all construction but was just a restriction following the excessive number of new constructions.

In a written statement made regarding the issue he said that the mandate was published by the City Planning Office to plan the developments in the Karsiyaka-Bahceli district of Kyrenia, and that comments that said the constructions were stopped in total was an exaggeration.

Current regulations still valid

Findik stated that the Kyrenia White Zone Mandate, Beylerbeyi Mandate and Alagadi Environment Preservation Plan were not part of the temporary mandate published recently but were open to development in relation to the mandate suitable for the zone. He added that in other districts constructions have not been totally stopped but they have been slowed down as there had been heavy activity recently.

Findik said, "The current regulations are still valid for the construction of a house and commercial business offices." He added that the hotels and hostels that were being built also had their own mandates and regulations and continued, "The problems with the bigger resorts will have been solved through the regulations, we will have prevented the buildings that would be made on river banks, we will have prevented the destruction of forest areas and the coastline and the City Planning Office will have prevented any unregistered construction that might take start via the new regulation."

The Undersecretary said that during the planning process all the files that have been kept in line will have been passed and their permits would have been dealt with. During the 2 month period of the Kyrenia 2nd District Mandate the NGOs and State offices would work together to prepare the regulations. Findik said, "If the regulations are completed before the defined 2 month period than the new construction permits will be given according to the new regulations."
