Bra adopts a regulation for sanctions on construction and landscaping
During the last session of the City Council, the assembly adopted two important regulations.
Regulations for building and landscaping sanctions
The City of Bra has adopted a regulation for the application of administrative pecuniary sanctions in building and landscape matters. “It is”, explained the city planning councilor Anna Brizio, “a necessary tool to guarantee pre-established certainties in the application of the superordinate legislation, with the aim of ensuring the smooth running and impartiality of the administrative action. The answer to a need increasingly felt by citizens ”.
To illustrate the technical aspects of the new regulation, the manager of the Urban Planning Department Stefano Tealdi, who explained how the sanctions provided for by Presidential Decree 380/2001 for the building part and Legislative Decree 42/2004 for the landscape part are rather complex and contain uncertainties left to the discretion of the body that has the burden of application. The adoption of the regulation for the application of sanctions, inspired by criteria commensurate with the extent of the abuse and the time span that has elapsed since its implementation, will guide the activity of the office called to apply the legislation and all citizens, professionals and operators in the sector, to have greater certainty, more speed and fairness of administrative action.
The new discipline, which does not introduce new sanctions but only dictates the criteria to be followed in the application of state regulations, has obtained the approval of most of the assembly, starting with the president of the Urban Planning Commission Sergio Panero (Together for Panero-Civic Group ), according to which, “thanks to this regulation, not one cubic meter more will be built in the city than is permitted by law”.
The only dissenting voice is that of the councilor Annalisa Genta (Courage-You change), who urged the Administration to be more cautious as, according to her, this instrument would invade state and regional powers.
The reply came from the councilor Bruna Sibille (PD), who recalled how the regulation is the result of a work started some time ago that involved technical and legal investigations on the subject. “It was no longer possible to leave the situation unchanged. It was necessary to give an answer to the citizens ”.
Regulations for the Consultation of the Committees of Neighborhoods and Fractions
Among the items on the agenda is the adoption of a regulation for the establishment of the Municipal Council of the Committees of the Neighborhoods and Fractions. As commissioner Luciano Messa explained, it is a consultative body that does not replace the function of the individual committees. The Council will be consulted by the municipal administration whenever it has to adopt measures of general interest such as financial planning, territorial planning and any major works. "We are going to formalize a method of comparison already started for years through the use of the so-called 'Interquartieri' assembly".
The text passed with the abstention of minorities (with the exception of councilor Genta, who gave a favorable opinion) after the proposal made by the leader of the Lega group Marco Ellena to modify the regulation by inserting two councilors within the new body was rejected municipalities representing the majority and opposition.
