A new master plan for North Nicosia is being prepared and will come into force in July 2017, Mayor of North Nicosia, Mehmet Harmanci has said.
Figures supplied by the municipality show that 6,200 domestic residences and 646 business units were built over a five year period between June 2012 to date.
Mayor Harmanci said that changes to be made to the new master plan should cover the needs of the city.
He added that: “With the changes which took place in 2012, there were a lot of anomalies. The Plan became the toy of the politicians. With the new plan, political willpower will be tested again”.
