Barriers leave the construction


Moscow is the leader in optimizing licensing procedures in the construction industry.

The new Minister of Construction and Housing of the Russian Federation Vladimir Yakushev at his post plans to work on simplification of procedures in the construction sector. At the same time, it is in many ways intended to rely on Moscow’s experience. The capital for the last five years has made a qualitative leap in creating a comfortable business environment for the business.


Lately, significant measures have been taken at the federal level to reduce the administrative barriers in construction: all lists and procedures have been approved for all positions, from housing construction to construction of linear heat supply facilities. Excluded 38 procedures for connecting objects to utility networks. This allowed to reduce the time for the registration of land relations to 10 days.


“We need to work on making the procedures even easier,” said Vladimir Yakushev.

Work to reduce administrative barriers in construction is most actively conducted in Moscow. To date, all public services in the industry have been translated into electronic form, such practice can not boast of any capital of the world. All of them are provided through the portal of the mayor and the government of Moscow. In the near future plans – to translate the services of resource-supply organizations into electronic form and also make them available through the portal of the mayor’s office. In early November of last year, the government of the country adopted a resolution to conduct a pilot project in Moscow, the Moscow region and St. Petersburg to transfer the services of network companies to electronic form. “Its main goals were the possibility of filing a single application for connection, reducing the number of documents requested from the applicant and regulating the procedures of network organizations,” said Sergei Lyovkin, head of the Moscow city development policy department.


The timing of various procedures in construction in the Russian capital is constantly decreasing. So, only in 2017, from 30 to 14 days, the deadline for issuing GPRS was reduced, from 28 to 14 – the final inspection of the State Construction Supervision, from 30 to 20 – the state examination of the design documentation for reuse, from 30 to 15 – an estimate of the reliability of the estimated cost of the project reuse documentation. In total, their passage now takes 55 days instead of 118 days.


Recently the work on the preparation of the Consolidated Plan of Underground Communications and Structures was completed, starting in 2018, this service can be used by developers. Also in Moscow in 2017, the composition of the GPRS includes data on the passage of networks and the possibility of technological connection to them. This information allows developers to circumvent “pitfalls” in advance, connected with the connection of communications to the construction sites.


In the spring of 2018, the city authorities approved the rules for introducing amendments to the Land Use and Development Rules (PZZ) of Moscow. It is assumed that the procedure itself after the approval of the new document will be substantially simplified. This important event was eagerly awaited by the capital’s developers and developers.
