Standard Building Regulations, new in the Marche

07/16/2021 – The Marche Region takes over the Standard Building Regulations (RET) and approves an act of guidance to ensure the simplification and uniformity of the building regulations.

The address “Model Building Regulations Scheme – RET“Approved on Tuesday by the Regional Council, on the recommendation of the city planning councilor Stefano Aguzzi, comes after a consultation that lasted many months and with more than 20 meetings with all trade associations, with the Union of Italian provinces, with the Association of the Municipalities, with professionals, the orders of engineers, surveyors, architects, geologists, agronomists.

This RET Scheme – reads the note from the Marche Region – it is not compulsory and binding but can be freely accepted by the Municipalities. It is a concise document characterized by an agile and easy-to-consult structure and provides a homogeneous and uniform basis for the entire regional territory.

It proposes simplification, efficiency and effectiveness of administrative action for clarify hitherto discretionary issues, such as what is meant by total surface or accessory surface, clarifying that stairwells must be counted only once in horizontal projection for the whole building.

The Scheme takes into account the requests of the municipalities regarding problems that emerged during the monitoring phase by the Marche Region and provides possible operational solutions (such as, for example, the question of premises to be forgiven which has been attributed a useful height of 2.40 m, with a minimum height of 1.50 m for the sole purpose of practicability).

We remember that the Marche Region had already equipped itself with the RET in 2018 with the LR 8/2018 which gave municipalities time until 7 November 2018 to adapt.

The new RET scheme proposes ‘good practices’ to encourage orderly building development with regard to functionality, aesthetics and public hygiene, attention to a careful design to overcome architectural barriers, to a better quality of life and to the full usability of the environment.

The act promotes public safety and urban recovery, the social and functional requalification of abandoned areas and buildings, encourages sustainable development, urban regeneration and environmental sustainability. For this purpose, the criteria of the Itaca Protocol are included in the RET Scheme for the energy and environmental certification of buildings.

“We have finally arrived at the preparation of this policy act – explains Aguzzi -: in fact, the Model Building Regulation (RET) scheme aims on the one hand to standardize the building activities in all the municipalities of the Marche in order to create an overall simplification in the authorization approach and procedures for interventions, on the other hand to meet the needs of citizens who require this type of intervention, of professionals who have to draw up projects and of companies that have to intervene ”.

After the approval of building regulations, in particular with regard to urban regeneration “We have approved this Regulation Scheme that allows us to continue on a virtuous path in the sector, in anticipation of a new overall redefinition of the regional urban planning law” concludes the commissioner.
