In the controlled zone one should not:
- erect construction objects within the meaning of the construction law,

In the controlled zone, neither must trees grow within the distance shorter than 3 m, counting from the gas pipeline axis to the tree trunks, and any work may only be carried out after prior agreement with GAZ-SYSTEM S.A.
