Madrid Wants to Replace Urban Planning Licences with Sworn Declarations

5 May 2020 – Brainsre.news

The Community of Madrid is going to begin the process of amending the Land Act, to eliminate most of the urban planning licenses that have been mandatory until now and replace them with sworn declarations.

The President of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, announced on Tuesday that she will abolish urban planning licenses in favour of a sworn declaration, to “reduce the bureaucratic procedures” and “promote flexibility of hours and commercial openings”, in a clear hint not only to housing, but also to the opening of commercial premises.

In this way, the President is following in the footsteps of Madrid City Council, which has also decided to apply this statement as an express option for first occupancy licenses. In fact, the City Council has already created a specific team for this.
