Urban sprawl in Bucharest

The citizens' action group 'Save Bucharest' describes the Romanian capital as a "city-planning disaster" in a recently published study. The chairman of the action group, Dan Nicusor, portrays Bucharest's current construction boom: "Bucharest has a problem: entire districts are under attack. Buildings are being torn down and rebuilt in a chaotic manner. Huge buildings that clash with the rest of the city in terms of both their height and their facades have been built in many streets. Houses built in the 19th century have been knocked down without protest. ... Many are aware that the urban development plan can be sidestepped through local development plans. Romania is the only country in Europe where the parameters are changing because local development plans can be modified by private owners."
