Failed Legalization of Illegal Constructions

The Law for Treatment of Constructions without Permit that entered into force in early 2014 has failed to fulfill its purpose. Thus the process launched two years ago to legalize illegal constructions has actually failed.

The data from the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning, respectively the report by Municipalities for the first phase of the Registry as well as the second phase of the application for legalization (Category I, II and III construction) suggests that there were over 353 thousand illegal constructions, while there were only about 8 thousand and 500 applications for legalization (including 6 thousand applications from the process of 2010 in the Municipality of Prishtina).
