Conflicts of Authority to be Prevented

Minister Ersoy later stated to the journalists that they examined various tourism centers due to the launch of the Cappadocia Site Directorate, which was created with the aim of promoting the region, protecting it and preventing illegal construction.
Emphasizing that the Cappadocia Site Directorate will provide an important advantage for the region, Ersoy stated that the authority conflicts in various ministries and municipalities will be prevented in Cappadocia.
Minister Ersoy said: “With the introduction of the Cappadocia Field Directorate, we are conducting on-site inspections. The important thing is to increase the income of Cappadocia, to increase the number of days of tourists in the region. There is an increase compared to last year. We think that it will come to where it misses tourism by running the Cappadocia Field Directorate faster and increasing its share in promotion. The reason for the establishment of the Field Presidency is to eliminate the conflicts of authority. There was a conflict of authority between the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and the municipalities. For this reason, the duration of the decisions to be issued by the boards was very long. Unfortunately, with the prolongation of the time, you encourage fugitives. Sometimes people expected 8 years for the decision to come out. Waiting time also caused illegal construction. ”
Mentioning that the Cappadocia Field Directorate has shortened the said periods, Ersoy said, “We will also speed up the file decision periods. In the past, the demolition authority was only in the municipalities and the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization. Currently, the Field Presidency has been authorized to demolish. Sometimes municipalities did not act quickly about demolition due to election anxiety. From now on, the Presidency of the Site will use the power of demolition to get ahead of the construction and illegal construction more quickly. ” used expressions.
