Lysá nad Labem in Nymburk wants to obtain a contribution from developers for technical, transport and other public infrastructure, for example for water supply, sewerage or road repairs. The developer should pay 100,000 crowns for a newly built smaller apartment with an area of up to 70 square meters, and 150,000 crowns for a larger one. The city councilors approved the principles for providing contributions, and the representatives will decide on them on Wednesday.
“It is aimed at apartment buildings, family houses have an exception,” said the mayor of Lysá nad Labem Karel Marek (Lysá connects us). He estimated the city’s capacity for future construction at roughly another 200 to 250 new apartments. “We could get roughly 25 to 30 million crowns this way,” he added. The city currently lacks the most money for water supply and sewerage. “This is an area that is significantly underinvested and we lack at least 200 million in it,” concluded Marek.
When determining the amount of the contribution, Lysá was based, among other things, on a comparison with other nearby cities that already have similar decrees, added Marek. For example, developers in Český Brod, Brandýs nad Labem or Nymburk contribute to public infrastructure. According to Marko, the suggested amounts take into account, for example, the distance between the city and Prague. The town hall also plans to contribute to the city for non-residential premises, proposing 700 crowns per square meter.
The investor will have to make a contribution right at the beginning of the process. “If we, as a city, are to express ourselves positively in the construction procedure, a contract with this commitment must be signed,” said Marek.
