Azerbaijan Parliament’s Commission Cancels Ban on Construction of Private Houses in Coastal Areas of Caspian Sea
Azerbaijan, Baku, 10 September / Trend , corr. I.Alizade / Azerbaijan Parliament's Commission on Agrarian Policy cancelled the ban imposed on construction of private houses in the coastal areas of the Caspian Sea.
"According to the Law on Land Reform, the lands located in 80-130m coastal areas of the Caspian Sea were considered State lands and a ban was imposed on construction of private properties there," the Chairman of the Commission, Eldar Ibrahimov, said during the session of the Commission on 10 September.
The session of the Commission discussed and approved the amendments and additions to the Law on Land Reform.
Ibrahimov said that despite the ban imposed by the law, numerous private houses have been constructed in the State lands located on the Caspian coasts.
"Now it is a problem to pull down them. Even pulling down those houses can be assessed as violation of human rights. Therefore, in order to legalize the construction of those houses, the State lands on the coast of the Caspian Sea are suggested to be reduced up to 20- 50 meters," Ibrahimov said.
The Commission recommended presenting the amendments to the discussions in the Parliament.
