These zones are located in the residential area of Vrbas. Considering the position and existing layout, multipurpose buildings which correspond to the public infrastructure can be built. Residential buildings have been planned in this zone, but not exceeding ground plus four floors. This anticipates a special organisational regime and space utilisation (the need to allow opening of the inner part of the block), and improvement of quality and aesthetic features of the buildings. Business premises are allowed within the residential buildings. These businesses should be of administrative, services, repairs and commercial nature. Total area of this zone is 110 ha.




Industrial zones in Vrbas are mostly furnished with the required public utility installations. Development tendencies in organisational sense imply interweaving of different activities, specific business regime and development of business incubator aimed at expansion of small and medium businesses. In line with this, it is necessary to adequately improve the production, restructuring of the existing and dispersion of new activities, all in compliance with the spatial-ecological capacity. Position of these locations towards the corridor of E-75 motorway (and the off ramp), represent an additional factor in their integration into a wider regional environment. Total are covered by this zone equals 180 ha.

In villages, priority is given to programmes for utilisation and processing of the local raw materials, and accompanying service activities on remote locations – in either new or existing but non-functional structures, primarily in the segments of production, primary processing, storing or packaging of certain products, service activities related to agriculture and similar. Total area of industrial locations is 255 ha.

All structures and complexes must be built in compliance to the “Strategic Evaluation of Environmental Impact Act”. 




This area is located in the eastern section of Vrbas, in the industrial area “East”, situated on the left and right banks of the Veliki Bački kanal (The Great Canal of Bačka), upstream from the ”triangle”.

For the needs of the port, building on the area of 4ha will continue, and this area will play, after big cleanup of the Canal, an important role in the transport system. All required access roads and industrial railroad will be built on this site. This area will be primarily used for trans-shipment of bulk cargo, although expansion of the water surface remains an option, and thus expansion on activities related to other types of cargo. If there should be a need and if there is economical justification, this port will be enabled for integral transportation, considering that it has been planned that all three means of transport meet at that location.

Auxiliary purpose of this location is set for secondary and tertiary activities, i.e. most of the space is intended for business activities in the fields of handicraft production, construction, trade, traffic and communication. Purpose of secondary and tertiary activities implies processing industry which will use.




Analysis of the current situation regarding tourism industry in the Municipality of Vrbas shows that the following can be achieved:

  • Create tourist zone around the town of Vrbas – destined for tourism based on cultural and historical heritage, events, business activities and similar,
  • Fishpond zone and nature reserve “Jegrička”, based on excursion, sports and recreational tourism (hunting and fishing) and similar, and
  • Grange zone – based on cultural, educational and weekend tourism.

It is possible to organise sports and recreational complexes in form of park, enriched with a variety of activities that will take place on open grounds. Most of the area allocated for this purpose is intended for water surfaces with planned smaller catering facilities.
