Over the last decade, the city of Rijeka has merged activities and applies a more responsible administration approach to urban development projects. Rijeka is benefiting from the introduction of Croatian Codex in consultation processes with the public and EU Smart Regulation, and adjusting accordingly in order to achieve open access to the administration and ensure the rights of the citizens to participate in decision making processes. The City of Rijeka Administration has 450 employees and consists of 12 departments and 2 offices situated in five locations, and among them is The City Department of development, urban planning, ecology and land administration which carries out the activities that provide conditions for urban area management and urban development planning, building area planning, and the promotion of activities aimed at environmental protection.
