Bulgarian prosecutors probe Bansko construction developments

Bulgaria's administrative prosecution authorities have launched a massive inspection of the legality of construction developments in local ski resort Bansko in response to numerous tip-offs from members of the public and various organisations.

The authorities said the check will encompass completed structures as well as construction projects still in progress.

This is the second probe of its type implemented by the prosecution authorities. In mid-2006, they checked for illegal developments ski resort Pamporovo, sealing off and condemning some construction sites. However, these measures had not follow-up.

The Save Pirin coalition has alerted the authorities about the decision of the Bansko municipal council to double the size of the resort's skiing zone and about skiing developments proposed for the areas of Razlog and Dobrinishte that could infringe on national park territories.

The coalition said it is investigating how construction company Glavbolgarstroy acquired 50 ha of land from the national forest stock near Razlog, a location designated for a golf development despite its immediate proximity to a national park.

A coalition report issued in 2006 claims that two thirds of the facilities in the Bansko skiing zone were built without the necessary permits from the environment ministry and that the permits that were granted have been violated.

Data of the Bansko municipality shows that over 400 building permits for developments with a combined area of over 450,000 sq m were issued in 2004-2006.

The National Construction Control Directorate will check the legality of the issued permits and the compliance of construction activity with the scope of the respective permit.

Deputy chief prosecutor Mityo Markov said that structures lacking an environmental impact assessment - in cases when it is compulsory, will be demolished. Under the local legislation, an environmental impact assessment is required only for construction in non-urbanised areas.
