Through our project, we would like to support our effort to preserve the principles of public participation on decision-making in environmental matters, which is under threat from proposed amendment to Building Code. The principles of public participation, such as public access to environmental information and public participation in decision-making which affects the environment, are crucial elements of civil society. Their embodiment in the legislation is fundamental for active participation of citizens and NGOs in public matters.
Ensuring appropriate legislative background is essential for successful work of local initiatives, groups and individuals, which want to take part in decision-making about their surroundings. Preservation of public participation in administrative proceedings will allow continuing cooperation between citizens and public administration, with respect for citizen´s right to live in good-quality environment.
