Strategies shared with architects for the new TUC

During the meeting, some general guidelines were shared regarding: the regulatory simplificationthe procedural simplification of individual local administrations in the field of construction, the rules that encourage the retraining and the transformability of existing buildings from a perspective of containing land consumption and redeveloping the oldest building stock, the “updating” of the planning of public residential and social housing interventions to the changed social and economic context of the country.

Irene Sassetti then highlighted theurgency to approve a new Consolidated Construction Law that reflects the current economic context, different from that in which the previous regulations were enacted. The CNI, in collaboration with the National Council of Architects, has already defined a series of principles on which to base the enabling law for the new Consolidated Law on Construction. This synergy between the various stakeholders aims to create legislative proposals and guidelines on interconnected topics, thus responding to the needs of local administrations, operators in the construction sector, technical professionals and public residential building management bodies.

Towards a new home plan

The CNI reiterated its commitment to supporting MIT in the definition of a House Plan that responds not only to the growing demand for affordable housing, but also to the new housing needs of an evolving middle class. The vision expressed by Sassetti during the meeting emphasizes the importance of reform the Presidential Decree 380/2001 and to review policies for public residential construction, moving towards broader and more complex social housing solutions.

The CNI proposes to address these issues with a long-term political vision and with technical insights, underlining the importance of investing in public housing as a response to the needs of large sections of the population.

The need for a national law on urban regeneration it is finally highlighted as fundamental for addressing challenges such as climate change and sustainability, inserting these issues into a regulatory framework that can offer concrete and effective solutions.
