SYROS: Urban Control Zones (UCZ)
Urban Zones in Siros: with yellow color are the RCZ and with green the Archaeological sites
The Urban Control Zones (UCZ) defined by the 1337/83 law, article 29, paragraph 2 (Gov.Gzt. 33/Art/83), are areas of ecological protection, determined according to law 165/1986 (Art 160) “For the protection of the environment” and are aiming at the “immediate protection and control of the constructions and land use for areas outside the urban planning, in order to prevent environmental degradation and uncontrolled development by the creation of real situations that undermine rational planning”.It was used as a leverage for legislating the proposals of the Special Spatial Planning Studies (SSPS), and they are approved with a Presidential Order.
The SSPS is a procedure for the rational planning of a sensitive and problematic area, aiming at the development while protecting the natural resources and the natural and anthropogenic environment, in the context of a sustainable development.
All the data of the natural and anthropogenic environment are examined for the area under study, and then recommendations are made regarding any building restrictions, land uses, siting of production activities, and technical infrastructure operations and projects, by defining and demarcating zones of environmental protection.
These studies are kept in the Archives of the Directorate for Spatial Policy and in the libraries of the Ministry and of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
