100 RISK REDUCTION MEASURES
Avoidance of building in hazard zones: Adaptation/re-zoning/shifting of building areas
Zoning plans for undeveloped plots of land which have already been designated as development areas are adapted to account for the risk to these areas; if necessary, a new area is designated as planning area for the revision stage (while the municipality revises the zoning/development plan).
