You will be required to have a parking space, even if you do not have a car. Yes, that’s what the proposal on the table of the Capital City Hall sounds, no matter how illogical it may seem to you.
Nicușor Dan is preparing a project that would benefit real estate developers. However, the citizens are not happy. People who want to buy an apartment may be forced to buy a parking space, even if they do not own a car.
The mayor of the capital is thus trying to solve the problem of traffic and parking spaces in Bucharest, as he promised in the election campaign. Even in the middle of the election campaign, he made a statement that worried many Bucharest residents: “any parking space in the city must cost”. Now, make this a reality.
In September 2021, the mayor general announced that the municipality is drafting a new parking regulation that would provide spaces for single lanes or bike lanes.
Yes, you don’t have a car, you’ll have a parking space
“The vicious circle in which we have been spinning for years is that people do not give up the car, because public transport does not work. Without giving up the car, park it on the first lane, legally or illegally, depending on the case, and then you have no place to put lanes for public transport. This is the vicious circle we have been in for years. You will soon see a proposed parking regulation. She will not be loved by some people, she will be loved by another “, Nicușor Dan declared for TVR 1, on September 29, 2021.
As a reference, a parking space is currently being sold by furniture developers for almost 10,000 euros, and this could lead to a substantial increase in apartment prices in the Capital. The only beneficiaries of all this? Real estate developers.
