The General Urban Plan of Deva Municipality has not been updated since 1999. So far it had only continuously been extended.

Now, the work in its first stage, featuring the submitting of documents, substantiation studies, analyses and field visits. This first stage is expected to be completed at the end of this year.

Deva is the capital of Hunedoara County, a city with a population of 69,924 inhabitants. The municipality of Deva is in continuous development. This implicitly requires the updating of the GUP depending on the evolution of social, geographical, economic, cultural factors and the needs of the local community.

The GUP and the local urban regulations mandate the laws on local land use, construction and use of buildings throughout the Municipality of Deva and component localities. The representatives of the company working on the project to update the General Urban Plan of Deva Municipality assured that it will be completed during 2021.
