Gov't and ruling Democratic Party agree on lifting and easing of military-related protection on lands for development Updated: 2022-01-14 15:50:17 KST

The South Korean government will lift protection on more than 9 million square meters of land, previously restricted for military operations.
On Friday, the Defense Ministry and the ruling Democratic Party agreed that landowners in these areas can now construct buildings or facilities without military approval.
In addition more than 3-million square meters of land classified as "Controlled Protection Zones" will be eased down to "Restricted Protection Zones" allowing military-approved construction.
Also, local governments will now take charge of approving developments in certain protected zones instead of the military making the administration process more accessible for citizens.
This applies to 34 million square meters of land in the Gyeonggi-do and Gangwon-do provinces.
