The cadastre ready by 2017

The optimistic scenario for the completion of the new cadastral map of Bulgaria is to be completed by 2017.

"It is better to be running a little slower, but qualitatively and not to create problems for the citizens, municipalities and businesses. The correct cadastre will allow easier to draw up the general plans of the municipalities. This in turn will improve their chances to qualify for money from the EU funds", explained the Minister of investment design.

It is already been added in the cadastral map the territories of zone "A" on the Black sea coast, and part of those of zone "B". The plans are in 2014 all 15 municipalities around the Black sea coast with cadastral map.
