Court orders to lift the suspension of the land management plan (“POT” acronym in spanish)
Through a decision of the Administrative Court of Cundinamarca of August 22, 2022, the decision of the Fifth Administrative Oral Court of the Circuit of Bogotá of June 14, 2022, which had decreed the provisional suspension of the legal effects of District Decree 555 of 2021, which adopts the general revision of the Land Management Plan of Bogotá D.C., was revoked. With this decision, the provisions of the District Decree 555 of 2021 return to govern the territorial planning of the Capital District.
The defendant, the Mayor's Office of Bogotá D.C. - Secretaría Distrital de Planeación, appealed the decision, arguing, among other subjects, a lack of substantiation of the request for the precautionary measure, and an overreach of functions by the judge of first instance, by supplanting the argumentative burden that corresponded to the applicant of the measure.
