Strengthening of local land management in Serbia
Majdanpek – Tourism development “Rajko’s cave and Ski resort”
Last update March 2014
Quality improvement for the process of
elaboration of a Detailed Regulation Plan
Impact Assessment (SEIA), prior to the
elaboration of the draft for the Detailed
Regulation Plan for the site.
The pilot project in the Municipality of
Majdanpek, implemented from 2011 to 2012
in close cooperation between AMBERO/ICON
and local stakeholders from different
institutions of the public administration,
accompanied the process of the elaboration of
a new Detailed Regulation Plan. The intention
of the introduction of new instruments and
approaches into the planning procedure was
to show how the procedure and the final plan
can be improved in its quality, regarding
social, economic and ecological sustainability.
Revitalisation of potentials for touristic
The new Detailed Regulation Plan was
elaborated to regulate the touristic redevelopment in the area of “Rajkovo Cave and
Ski Resort". Though the natural attractions
have a lot of potential to raise increased
interest for their touristic use, the touristic
infrastructure was neglected and no longer
suitable for the successful marketing of the
area. In order to enhance the success of the
envisaged future rehabilitation of the site, the
pilot project supported the elaboration of a
feasibility study based on an urban design
concept and a Strategic Environmental
Winter at the lake Veliki Zaton
Part of the urban design concept at the lake
Veliki Zaton
Early participation and transparency
Early stakeholder involvement and citizen
participation ensured the transparency of the
process, as well as the acceptance of the
envisaged development.
The urban development and design concept
carefully analyses capacities and restrictions
of the location, proposing a feasible and
locally supported solution for future land use
in the area. It further ensures the touristic
development of the area, respecting and
understanding it as the basis for its success.
The environmental sustainability of the
development concept was verified in a
Strategic Environmental Impact Assessment.
Through the development of a Feasibility
Study, prior to the development of the Plan,
investment and maintenance costs, as well as
expected revenues are estimated in order to
verify the economic feasibility of the project.
Since the whole process of elaboration of the
draft for the new Detailed Regulation Plan was
accompanied by continuous informing of the
public and active participation of local
stakeholders and citizens, the pilot project in
Majdanpek serves as an outstanding example
for including participation methods into
communal planning procedures, as well as
increasing their transparency. During the early
stage of the Detailed Regulation Plan and the
SEIA, for the first time in Serbia, a SPEAK OUT
was organized, which involved school children,
interested citizens, representatives of the
local government institutions.
The experiences made in the Municipality of
Majdanpek were included as an example in
the “Guide for Participation in Urban
Development Planning”, published as a jointly
elaborated product by the GIZ project and its
Organization of a Children’s drawing contest
about the future of the site
The Detailed Regulation Plan for the area was
adopted by the city council in April of 2013.
Citizens’ participation for the elaboration of
the urban design concept
This project assisted by the German Government is being carried out by the consortium of AMBERO Consulting and ICON Institute on
behalf of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH
