Project IDEA Pašman Resort will be renowned for its community spirit. The project strongly encourages integration, social interaction and the formation of close ties amongst community members. The local workforce, local residents and holiday makers share the same facilities and environment and develop the same passion for the land, the culture and the people. Pasman Resort is a place where different cultures merge and live the Mediterranean dream. The well-being of the local population has been given special attention. Local people will have the opportunity to open and run businesses within the resort and employment opportunities are varied and range from farming to managerial positions (about 7,5 ha of land within tourist zones is owned by private individuals).
Project ZONE Project area is 235 ha with 100 ha of tourist zones (2 zones per 50 ha with a maximum possible accommodation capacity of 2500 beds, a total of 5000 beds), logistic zone 5 ha and 130 ha of agricultural and recreational zones, of which 80 ha are foreseen for the potential golf course.
Project SCOPE The purpose of the land for the Project is defined by the Spatial Arrangement Plan of the Pašman Municipality, Amendments and Supplements 2015/2020.  (The Hospitality-tourist purposes zones are defined in Articles 115 to 120 and the Business purpose zone/Logistic zone is defined in Articles 109d to 109h)
