The first Anci synthetic note

Anci, the National Association of Italian Municipalities, has published the first summary note about the rules of interest to the Municipalities, contained in the Milleproroghe decree approved by the Council of Ministers on 21 December last.

The document highlights some measures of interest to the Municipalities, including:

  • extension of deadline for hiring social workers,
  • derogation from the non-assignment of tasks to members of regional and local political bodies,
  • extension of the deadline for the award of zero-six school building interventions,
  • deadlines for bringing educational and school buildings into compliance with fire regulations,
  • support for public exercises,
  • regularization of INPS contribution positions.

New kindergartens

Based on what was requested by the Anci, the decree extends the maximum deadline now set to 31 March 2023 to 31 May 2023 for the award of the safety measures, restructuring, redevelopment or construction of nursery schools and kindergartens referred to in paragraph 59, law n. 160/2019, included in the PNRR, thus allowing the local authorities benefiting from the loans to actually implement the interventions, also in consideration of the long time frame recorded from the publication of the rankings to the signing of the loan concession agreements. The progress of the Pnrr projects for nursery schools and kindergartens is in fact entrusted to the implementation of the local authorities.

Fire prevention school buildings

Pursuant to the new request from the ANCI, it differs as at 31 December 2023 the deadlines set for fire safety compliance in order to allow local authorities to use these resources also for fire prevention adaptation.

The fire protection design of buildings is part of a whole series of design obligations which can sometimes be difficult to keep an eye on in their complexity! In this regard, I suggest you an integrated software for fire design, of great help in finding the right solutions for full building safety.
