LKS will develop The New Arrigorriaga General Planning Legislation

The scope of the contract signed between LKS and the Town Council of Arrigorriaga includes the management of all the land in Arrigorriaga (adapting it to the current urban planning, territorial, sectorial and environmental legislation), urban planning (Document of Advance, initial and final approval) and the processing of the Strategic Environmental Assessment document of the PGOU document and the drafting of the Citizen Participation Program and follow-up of the process.

The current regulations were approved on February 8, 1999. These Rules have become obsolete thus,  in 2009 the City prompted the drafting of a new General Planning legislation (PGOU) that conformed the urban and sectoral legislation. In 2011 the process was stopped by judicial processes that affected two areas of the municipality. Once the legal proceedings were resolved, the City Council restarted the process, calling for the competition LKS has won.

The municipality of Arrigorriaga is located south of Bilbao, within the Metropolitan area. It borders with the municipalities of Alonsotegi, Bilbao, Basauri, Zaratamo, Zeberio, Ugao-Miraballes and Arrankudiaga. It has an area of 16,281,319 m² and more than 12,000 inhabitants.
