Summary of project DETLUP

The project aims to provide the so called Eastern partnership countries (representatives of local and regional government, NGOs and regional planners), valuable information and advice, why, where, when and how to prepare good land use plan for current and future economic and social development.

One of the prerequisites of good governance at local and regional level are transparent rules and policies strictly adhered to by the authorities, businesses and citizens. In order to place residential requirements (housing, services, shops, greenery), commercial and industrial areas (factories, shopping centers, industrial zones), govern the environment (parks, facilities, habitats), it is required to establish effective, respected and accessible land-use plan.
