This Regional Act provides for the reclamation and improvement of abandoned or uncultivated lands and lands which are insufficiently cultivated, within the environmental protection framework. Article 2 gives the definition of abandoned land, uncultivated land and insufficiently cultivated land. Within nine months from the entry into force of this Act, the Regional Council shall determine the abandoned lands falling within the regional territory. Thereafter, the Regional Council shall establish the criteria for the agricultural or forest use of such lands. Article 4 entrustes to the Communes the functions related to the census, classification and annual updating of abandoned or uncultivated lands. Allotment applications shall be submitted to the Provincial Agricultural Inspectorates, which shall notify them to the owners. The latter may cultivate directly the lands in question upon request submitted to the Inspectorate, to be accompanied by the development plan referred to in article 6. In case of allotment of the abandoned lands, the beneficiary shall pay a compensation to the owner (art. 8).

Repealed by: Regional Act No. 18 repealing certain provisions concerning the primary sector. (2004-08-13)
