This was announced by minister of agriculture and food Dr. Miroslav Naydenov, who visited the plot on the spot. In Nessebar, he discussed the matter at a working meeting with mayor Nikolay Dimitrov, Bourgas district governor Konstantin Grebenarov and representatives of the local Regional Inspectorate for Environment and Waters and the National Construction Supervision Directorate.
Minister Naydenov told reporters that after the land’s exclusion was initiated by the Executive Forest Agency, a statement was issued by the Ministry of Environment and Water that the plot had no environmental value and therefore no environmental assessment was necessary. After the approval of a detailed land use plan by then Nessebar mayor Magdalena Manduleva, in 2008 Executive Forest Agency director Stefan Yurukov withdrew the land from the forest fun and it thus obtained the status of an urbanized territory.
Construction works on the site have been suspended by the investors until the interdepartmental commission has come up with a stance on the sale, Naydenov said.
The National Construction Supervision Directorate is due to judge whether the construction is compliant with legislative rules. But since all deadlines for lodging appeals have expired, the transaction may only be dissolved though a court procedure, if necessary.
