On the occasion of the announcement of the proposal of the priority list for the allocation of urban areas of the City of Zagreb to the use of associations, Platform 112 and Association of Clubing Associations warn of a long-standing game in the vicious city of Zagreb - illogicality and non-transparency of the allocation of urban space,

The 112 Platform organizations submitted an appeal to the announced results of the competition for the award of urban space, since the rules of the game changed in the tender process - the formal terms of the competition were not respected and the required mandatory documentation for which certain associations were excluded from the competition. Specifically, the results did not indicate the area in which some associations applied for and was offered in the contest. In addition, 44 applications were rejected because the associations did not submit to the Municipal Court's conviction that the association or the authorized person would not conduct the criminal proceedings, although this was not specified in the mandatory documentation.

In addition to this, there are unclear criteria for allocating individual spaces for specific purposes. In the bidding itself, it is pre-determined for which space can be competed with associations with specific activity, regardless of the knowledge of the needs of these associations and their users. In addition to the lack of a competition for the allocation of space to associations, the spaces being placed in tenders are often inadequate, streamlined and poor infrastructure and in fact represent spaces that the City has failed to allocate to the profit sector.

Therefore 112 Platform is seeking annulment of the controversial 19 contest. October 2015. on the website of the City of Zagreb and the call for a repeated bid according to clearly specified conditions and criteria. It is a long time to approach the urban property policies and public property management policies more efficiently so that the premises would not be lost and put into social function. It is time for local authorities to understand that urban spaces are a public good of all citizens and all associations, and that the process of their assignment must be a "pure job" rather than a city game in a blur through non-transparent procedures and predetermined competitors.
