Abstract

Before the amendment of Act No. 579 of 18 June 2012 to the Planning Act, it was only possible for local authorities to lift local planning and zoning for areas returned to rural zones. The reason for the amendment was, among other things, the municipal desire for a more simplified and thus more appropriate management of issues which too often were based on exemptions. The amendment thus allows municipalities to abolish zoning and local plans for areas in urban areas when it is no longer possible to manage permissions/authorizations without the implementation of articles 14 or 19. The new provisions under article 33 of Planning Act shall provide guidance thereafter. And provisions already included prior to the amendment, may also be referred to section 8.3 of Guidelines No. 9922 of 28 April 2009 (accessible at www.retsinformation.dk/Forms/R0710. aspx? id = 128542nd).
