Issuance of building permits in the off-plan areas of Mykonos is suspended
The Department of Architecture, Building Regulations and Licensing of the Ministry of Environment and Energy.
"Until the special urban planning is approved which will definitively deal with all the issues, they are suspended and no new urban planning permit will be issued for areas outside the plan in Mykonos," the Minister of Environment and Energy, Kostas Skrekas, said in the Parliament, among others, when asked about the legislative initiative regarding off-plan building in Mykonos.
According to the minister, "no illegal act, no illegal plan will be allowed to be legalized. I repeat, no blackmail and no loophole is going to work."
It is recalled that with the proposed regulation, the issuance of all building permits in the off-plan areas of the island of Mykonos is suspended, except for some exceptions, such as those for the repairs of legally existing buildings, within the legal boundaries and volume and until the approval of the relevant special urban plan.
The Department of Architecture, Building Regulations and Licensing of the Ministry of Environment and Energy is designated as the competent body for granting the above permits. In other words, the responsibility falls to the central service of the Ministry in Athens. The will of the Government is clear and will be implemented in a manner that leaves no room for misinterpretation, in or out of quotation marks.
