In 1960, Bulgarian authorities relocated several Roma families to an agriculture zone in Garmen following the administrative evolution of Bulgarian municipalities . The Kremikovtsi neighbourhood has been established as a segregated area, hosting today around 1000 Roma, including 350 children, some of them with disabilities . The place remained out of the urban regulation planning until 2000 when some initiatives for legalizing the constructions have been undertaken by Ahmed Bashev, former mayor of Garmen (1999-2001) . Meanwhile many Roma families obtained documents proving the ownership of the lands on which their houses were built . In 2013-2014 the municipality, decided to organize public tenders for selling small parcels located in the settlement but this tender has never taken place . One year later, the municipality decided to execute houses demolition orders issued in 2011 .
