Process for new building permits goes on line on test basis

Building permits are being offered online as of Monday on a test basis, in a bid to speed up the progress.

Environment and Energy Minister Giorgos Stathakis said that the new system, being managed by the Technical Chamber of Grreece, will be up and fully running by mid October.

“The whole process is being simplified and sped up. It will be done electronically, with complete transparency, without contact with the departments and with continued checks,” said the minister.
