Madrid announces the "most ambitious urban regulations of the last 24 years" to adapt the city to the XXI century

An ecological legislative reform with a new Land Law, public-private partnerships, revitalisation and urban regeneration. This is the ambitious aim of the administration to adapt the city to the 21st century, which will also be supported by the scientific partners of the VEG-GAP project.

Once this reform proposal is presented, a process of public information will be opened so that all the sectors involved can contribute with the improvements they consider necessary so that the city has, from an urban point of view, clearer rules for all.

The intention is to open up the rules to new European trends (only with regard to air quality, European Directives 2008/50/EC, 2004/107/EC and 2015/1480/EC, as well as Commission Implementing Decision 2011/850/EU), investment and employment. For this reason, it is proposed, among other aspects, to allow the hybridisation of land uses in the city, which will also involve its green spaces in a positive way.

Another novelty is that environmental sustainability criteria will be promoted for the renovation of buildings and for new construction, generating incentives for those properties that are committed to the 'green factor'.
