According to a Municipality announcement, a decision has been taken to formally discuss a new Local Plan during the first few months of 2020.
Athena Aristotelous-Kleridou, director, Department of Town Planning and Housing, Cyprus had, on February 19, met with Yiotis Papachristophis, mayor, Polis Chrysochous, to discuss ways to improve the area’s hotel industry.
The Municipality added that it would try to convince the state that the building coefficient within its current Local Plan was too low, leaving the area underdeveloped.
“We are not satisfied with the current Local Plan so we are asking for it to be revised and request an increase for the building coefficient when connected to the hotel industry,” commented Papachristofis. “This would make it possible to construct viable tourist units, increase incoming tourism into the area, and create new jobs.”
