In 2010, NALAS received a request from the Association of the Units of Local Self-Government of Republic of Macedonia (ZELS) regarding the fees associated with preparation of construction land. Their questions were:
1. How the municipalities of the NALAS members decide on the fee for arranging of (or preparation of) construction land? In Macedonia, that is a category of communal fees during construction – fees that are calculated per square metre, paid by the investor and used to provide electrical supply, water, sanitation and street lighting for the building.
2. How much is this fee in the capital city and what is the average fee in the other parts of the country?
