The Baku City Executive Power issued a decree on the location of buildings in the capital to tighten state control over city construction, MBA Group CEO Nusret Ibrahimov said.

"The provision of documents confirming the construction process's compliance with regulatory requirements was required in the past and the executive power has apparently decided to warn construction companies about these requirements," Ibrahimov said.

The Baku City Executive Power issued a decree according to which the location of buildings in Baku must be justified. The decree was adopted to improve procedures for issuing building permits.

According to the order, the General Directorate of State Architecture and Town Building Committee are charged with preparing the required city-planning documents.

The head of the Baku City Executive Power signed the order on Dec. 22.
