Case number:
U-I-7/13, Up-29/13
Challenged act:
Operative provisions:
Decisions on land use and the conditions for locating buildings in an area must be made following the prescribed procedure for the preparation and adoption of spatial acts. A draft spatial act may, however, be changed on the basis of the comments submitted following a public unveiling or public consultation, but only regarding those spatial developments and regulations that are the subject of the public unveiling or consultation. As the spatial act was changed after the public unveiling by the inclusion of a completely new spatial development, in the contested part it was inconsistent with the third paragraph of Article 153 of the Constitution. 
As a building permit entails an interference with the rights and legal benefits of an individual, the individual must have the possibility to state legal and factual issues relating to the protection of his or her legally protected position in the procedure for the issuance of a building permit. In such procedure and in the procedure for the judicial review of administrative acts, a third party intervener can protect his or her legal position also by filing a motion for opposition regarding the spatial act the building permit was based on. 
The Constitutional Court abrogated the contested judgment, which was based on a regulation found to be inconsistent with the Constitution.
