Bulgaria adopts law on Black Sea coast anagement

Date: 01.06.2007

Bulgaria's Parliament adopted on Friday the Black Sea Coast Spatial Development Bill, concerning the scope of the areas where construction is prohibited, which will enter into force from January 1, 2008.

The law provides for the settling of two guarded zones, A and B, along the seacoast. Zone A covers the area from the water to a 100 metres inland, which means the beaches and the dunes. The new law puts a ban on constructing movable objects.

Zone B includes the areas that enter a 2-kilometer-wide strip of land, where no dumpsites can be built. In the villages, the towns and the resorts the construction works will not be imposed any grave restrictions.

The building restrictions in zones A and B do not assign to legally built objects, as well as to applying investment projects developed on already approved building plans.

People, who somehow curb free access to the beaches or try to collect taxes for that will be imposed fines ranging from BGN 3000 to BGN 6000. If the tax collector is a firm of some sort, the fine will be from BGN 6000 to BGN 24 000.

The date of law's entering into force was delayed after a proposal by MPs from the ethnic Turkish party. The opposition strongly opposed to this because this way the parliament gives one more year for illegal constructions on the Black Sea coast.

The legal and illegal building on the country's seacoast has been a largely discussed topic in the past couple of years as the number of erected hotels and holiday complexes has been growing extremely fast.
