The implementing regulations cover 11 clusters, including acceleration of the preparation spatial plan/detailed spatial plan, Norm, Standard, Procedures and Criteria of the environment, environmental licensing, Norm, Standard, Procedures and Criteria for buildings, building technical standards, building prototypes, and list of investment priorities.
