The Cabinet's decision on Akamas published today

What it includes

The Akamas Local Plan, prepared by the Minister of Interior, was published by K after being approved by the Council of Ministers. It governs development within the administrative boundaries of the municipalities of Kathika, Pano Arodon, Kato Arodon, Ineia, Druscia, Fasli, Androlykos, and Neos Chorio. You may recall that the Council of Ministers, at its meeting on Wednesday, February 22, gave the Minister of the Interior permission to publish the Akamas Local Plan with a six-month delay in its implementation, or until September 1, 2023, in order to further assess the likelihood of achieving the Development Plan's goals pertaining to the economic and social aspects.

It is anticipated that during the six months that the 'White Zone' will be in effect, the area's data will be evaluated, and of course, pertinent studies will be conducted to better define measures and actions to meet the established socio-economic strategic objectives. It should be noted that the four-month window for filing objections to the Akamas Local Plan's provisions also opens with its publication, allowing the Planning and Zoning Department to review any potential objections in advance.
