Physical Planning Information System – PPIS

Data on space use available in one place through valid spatial plans and issued permits

The Physical Planning Information System (PPIS) is an application of the Ministry of Physical Planning, Construction and State Assets that, via the geoportal, enables citizens simple access to information on space use. The goal of establishing the PPIS is to achieve transparency of the physical planning system, make relevant data available to all, and enable easy access to all processes that occur in space.

The geoportal is a central point of access to individual, so called PPIS modules, i.e. software solutions such as e-Permit, e-Catalogue, e-Properties, etc. that are used for entry and uploading of data and available to authorised users from public authorities competent for carrying out procedures in the field of physical planning, construction, property value appraisal, building inspection, etc. The data sets uploaded through modules are available to citizens for viewing on the geoportal in the scope defined by acts and subordinate legislation.

The amendments to the Building Act and the Physical Planning Act were adopted in April 2019. The key amendment to the legal framework was the introduction of the e-Conference system which is used for digitally submitting, collecting and processing all documents required for the issuing of the building permit.  The procedure for issuing permits has been simplified and fully digitised, the content of required documents for issuing the permit was reduced, and communication of all participants in the system is performed electronically by establishing the electronic notice board.

The Physical Planning Information System (PPIS) is a state-owned interoperable and multi-platform system that the Ministry of Physical Planning, Construction and State Assets is continuously developing and upgrading since 2013, whereby currently as many as 12 system modules are in the functional phase:  GEO portal, e-Plans, e-Catalogue, e-Plans– Editor, e-Permit, PPIS Locator, e-Conference, e-Archives, Register of Brownfield Areas, e-Properties, e-Satellites, e-PIC and at the same time new modules are under development: e-Investments, e-Energy Certificate, e-Spatial Inspection, e-Construction Log and e-Regimes.
