Regional spatial plan of the administrative area of the City of Belgrade is a planning document which is a link between the Spatial Plan of the Republic of Serbia (higher – order plan) and other planning documents of lower order. Even though it explores and examines the scope of the territory wider than the city area, the Plan is strictly applied to the area of 17 city municipalities as follows: Stari Grad, Savski Venac, Vračar, Palilula, Zvezdara, Zemun, Čukarica, Rakovica, Voždovac, Novi Beograd, Surčin, Grocka, Mladenovac, Sopot, Barajevo, Lazarevac and Obrenovac, which all together constitute the administrative area of Belgrade, or the City of Belgrade.
Master Plan of Belgrade covering a part of the administrative area of Belgrade with 10 central municipalities has been prepared in accordance with the above mentioned planning document, while local municipality plans are applied for other municipalities like Obrenovac, Lazarevac, Barajevo, Sopot, Mladenovac, and parts of Surcin and Grocka. Master Plan of Belgrade is applied through General Regulation Plans with guidelines for mandatory preparation of Detailed Regulation Plans and through other specific implementation instruments defined in the Master Plan of Belgrade.
Belgrade Land Development Public Agency finances preparation of the planning and urban-design documents and enters into contracts for preparation of detailed regulation plans, urban-planning designs, allotment designs or re-allotment designs, all in accordance with its annual programmes. In addition to these spatial and urban planning documents, the Agency also finances preparation of preparatory documents, such as those related to division of cadastral plots in order to form a building plot in accordance with the planning document, i.e. separation of the public land from other land in cases when building plot of public land use had not been determined by the planning document.
