Floating houses and legal issues
Before choosing a place to moor our floating house, we should get familiar with the local zoning plan. Thanks to it, we will learn where the shoreline of a given reservoir has been planned. In addition, it is also worth checking if the place we have chosen is not under conservation protection. In such a case, we will have to obtain a permission for our floating house, because it will interfere with the landscape, which has been taken care of. It happens that the project has to be redesigned in such a way that it is adapted, among other things, to the development of the historical shore of the water reservoir. If we decide to have a floating house on the bank of a river on which there is regular water traffic, we should go to the Inland Navigation Office. This authority will determine whether the floating house is not an obstacle for watercrafts. Finally, there are the financial issues, that is to say, the fees associated with mooring at a given place. They are determined by the relevant department of the Regional Water Management Authority.
