The building law passes when Dostálová gets the support of the communists

When the Chamber of Deputies last voted on the building law, which, according to Dostalová, is to start construction in the Czech Republic, 92 deputies raised their hands for the law. The law passed the votes of YES, SPD and three legislators from the CSSD. Dostálová needs 101 votes to vote for the Senate. At the same time, the attitude of the coalition CSSD will not fundamentally change.

“As with the vote in the third reading, the vast majority of the CSSD will vote against the building law,” said club chairman Jan Chvojka, who also voted against.

As has happened several times during this election period, it will depend on the Communists. The latter did not like the enforcement of the amendment, according to which living rooms would not have to have direct lighting and ventilation, ie windows. They unanimously rejected the law. Dostálová has been discussing this issue with the Communists in recent weeks, and she herself does not agree with the proposal. “Fortunately, the amendment can be made by decree. Of course, no one will live in the cellars, “she said.

The vice-chairman of the KSČM club, Leo Luzar, agrees with such a solution and is ready to vote for the building law this time. “It will be enough for me,” said the deputy, adding that Dostálová will come on Tuesday at a meeting of the communist club to convince her colleagues as well.

Luzar did not want to say what attitude prevailed in the 15-member club. “I did not probe that. I’m more in favor, but I’ll wait for the Minister to speak to her colleagues. Perhaps those who have a problem will be satisfied with its explanation, “Luzar added, according to which deputies will probably have a free vote.

While the SPD has once again declared support for the law, the five remaining opposition parties remain negative. ODS, Pirátům, KDU-ČSL, TOP 09 and STAN are particularly annoyed by the transfer of building offices to the state and the creation of a brand new Supreme Building Authority.

MEPs say that, paradoxically, the construction process could slow down even more. The same was argued by the senators, who therefore unanimously – that is, the votes of the senators YES – rejected the law. The bill is also criticized by representatives of municipalities and cities, who are also bothered by interference in spatial planning.

Dostálová defends that the new building law is the best chance to unblock stuck construction and eliminate systemic bias in officials. The law introduces strict deadlines, the principle of appeal, the builder will not have to ask for dozens of stamps as before, the whole procedure is being digitized and officials and all authorities will pass materials to each other.

“Our goal is definitely not a war with the municipalities, but permits for a year and a day for large constructions. Nobody came up with a better way to achieve this goal, “the minister said.
