O Estatuto da Cidade para Inglês ver


Na semana passada ao ter que escrever sobre a Lei Federal 10 257/2010 – o Estatuto da Cidade e suas utilizações na nova proposta de Plano Diretor para a cidade de São Paulo é que me dei conta de que não existe um inteiro processo de tradução da lei que é o mais importante instrumento de controle urbano no Brasil e que foi resultado de longos anos de debate para ser editado. Como consequência fiz o texto da maneira como precisava, mas disponho para todos aqueles que necessitarem – como eu – de escrever sobre ele e não achá-lo na língua de Shaekspere. Pelo menos alguns artigos já podem ser encontrados…

The City Statute and the mechanism of urban control – the case of São Paulo’s Plan Director

I – Introduction

In July 10 / 2001 was aprooved a Federal Law  no. 10.257 called The City Statute that was set to control the urban development in accordance to  the regulation of the Federal Constitution of 1988 and it’s articles number 182 e 183. This law has been placed on the legal conditions for the politic-administrative management of the cities and the control of urban development which consolidated in an adequate manner, and its effective materialization through public policies depend fundamentally on a wide brazilian social mobilization.

It’s also important to point out that, today, 82% of the Brazilian population lives in urban areas.

II – The principles of urban planning instruments from the The City Statute

The right to the surface

The right to the surface was founded by the City Statute, which can be seen in the articles 21 to 24, and introduces a separation of the right of owning the surface and right to build on that surface. Any construction must follow the regulation of the Director Plan and it’s limits of social use.

The onerous award on the right to erect buildings

The onerous grant of the right to build was created by the City Statute in the articles 28-31.

This is essentially a typical instrument of urban development and may be useful to provide services and equipments for urban projects in joint housing for residential use.

The statute also specifies that the municipal law establishing the instrument must set “formula for calculating recovery” and the cases of exemption or rebate payment.

Urban Consortium  Operations  (Operações Urbanas Consorciadas )

The joint urban operations are regulated by the City Statute. They must be set by an specific municipal law, based on the Master Plan. In a joint urban operation, the statute says that “May be provided, among other measures:

I – The modification of indices and the installment characteristics, use and occupation of the soil and subsoil, as well as revised standards of edilicio considering the environmental impact arising from them;

II – Regulation of buildings, renovations or expansions performed in violation of the law. ”

Transference of the Right to Build

The transference of the right to build is a tool created for the specific purpose that is to protect buildings that have either artistic, historical or scenic value and prevent them from the use that the Master Plan would allow by providing compatible economic compensation.  It is also a tool provided by the City Statute (art. 35). The Statute provides three purposes:

“I – implementation of urban and community equipments;

II – preservation, when the property is considered of historical, environmental, landscape, social or cultural interest;

III – Dispose land regularization programs, urbanization of areas occupied by low-income and social housing.”

The statute also says that the transference also “may be granted to the owner to donate to the Government all, or part of your property for the purposes specified earlier, I to III.”

III – The use of the tools of the City Statute in the proposed Master Plan of the City of São Paulo
