“Construction is a key element of a country's economic success, and a stable and supportive environment is essential for its development. However, the Czech Republic faces insufficient simplification of legislation and permitting processes, which deters potential investors and makes infrastructure development more difficult. The Association of Developers emphasizes that it is time for a real change that would bring about effective spatial planning, fast building permits, digitization of processes and financial support for cities and municipalities," says Tomáš Kadeřábek, director of the Association of Developers of the Czech Republic.

Issues such as the loss of skilled labor, underfunding of urban and municipal development, and shortages of building materials are just some of the many that need to be addressed. "We call for a dialogue with the relevant ministries and the adoption of measures that take into account the needs of the sector and support its healthy development," emphasizes Tomáš Kadeřábek.

The Association of Developers of the Czech Republic emphasizes six key areas for improving the situation: effective spatial planning, simple building permits, effective digitization of processes, investment support for cities and municipalities, revision of the tax burden and reduction of regulation in favor of innovation. These steps are considered the basis for restoring the dynamics in the area of development and for strengthening the Czech economy. It is essential that construction becomes a public interest priority and that it is politically and socially supported.

It is precisely these points that are contained in the Czech development call, which is the result of a consensus of domestic developers, and which, according to the association, will be introduced to the leading representatives of the Czech Republic in the following period.

"We don't just want to come in criticizing what's wrong, what's broken, or what we're struggling with. We take our Call for Czech Development as a call to public institutions for close cooperation. On the contrary, we warn against the ideas of some, leading to deeper regulation. As experience from abroad shows, regulation ultimately leads to the opposite result," concludes Tomáš Kadeřábek.
