The Riigikogu approved with 41 votes in favour the Act on Amendments to the Land Improvement Act (830 SE), initiated by the Government.

Act aims to ensure that the basic planning documents prepared concerning the hydrographic network of Estonia (water management plans and land improvement management plans) are prepared concerning the same territories (basins) which would allow a more adequate understanding of them.

The Act provides for the disclosure of these documents as simultaneously as possible which will presumably ensure that the target group and the public understand better the problems raised in the documents and the implementing measures taken to solve them. The Act repeals the provision delegating authority on the basis of which land improvement plans for basins are approved by the Government. In the future the Minister of Agriculture will establish them because they are documents falling within the competence of a specific field.
