The change is to enable using among others municipal lawns for recreational and leisure purposes and to put a stop to penalties for using these areas. At the moment it is subject to a fine up to PLN 1,000 or a penalty of a reprimand. The draft changes were directed to the Senate. The changes are to come into force within 30 days from its announcement.
