Governors fail to agree over Brdy territory

The governors of the Plzeň and Central Bohemian regions have not come to an agreement about what to do with the territory of the military training estate Brdy after the Czech army departs. Plzeň governor Milan Chovanec supports the government’s proposal that suggests dividing the territory between the two regions, while the Central Bohemian governor Josef Řihák is opposed. Now it is up to the parliament to decide on the matter. At a meeting on Monday, the two governors did agree on all other matters, including security, nature preservation measures and the development in the area. In a joint announcement, the two said they do not want to let any big developers to place large buildings in the Brdy area.
