Metropolitan Plan outlines vision of Prague for decades, says mayor

The Prague Institute of Planning and Development has submitted the strategic urban or municipal plan for the Czech capital, to come effect in 2023, Prague Mayor Adriana Krnáčová confirmed on Monday.

The plan in use now was adopted in 1999.

The new strategic plan will introduce the regulation of building height limits; unlike the current plan, the new one will take into account not only the function or use of different sites but also their character and their location within specific city districts, architect Roman Koucký, who headed the team which put together the document, said.

It will be possible to suggest additions or tweaks to the plan for a period of 30 days beginning on June 27.
