Representatives of the construction business note the positive dynamics in reforming the procedures of technical connection of facilities. 72% of the participants in the research conducted by VCIOM and ASI, noted that the connection to the grid became more accessible.
The greatest progress in simplifying the procedure of joining the engineering networks was achieved in the current year, 2017, 39% of respondents believe. In addition, what is important, every third owner of business noted the reduction in the volume of documents required for technical connection.
In general, the survey showed a high level of awareness of the business community about the ongoing reforms of administrative procedures. 66% of investors expressed their satisfaction with the quality of information provided by state bodies.
However, not all problems with obtaining state services in the construction sector have been solved yet. So, for example, developers noted the absence in the regions of the approved standards of urban planning, bureaucratic barriers to registration of property rights and difficulties in submitting documents for the auction.
“According to the results of August 2017, only 38% of the standards for town-planning design of settlements were approved and 58% of the standards for municipal districts”, said Dmitry Voronkov, head of the department for monitoring business initiatives in the New Dimension of the ASI.
According to him, the main difficulties for developers is the preparation of a package of documents and the passage of the auction. They also note the tight timing of this electronic procedure. This was stated by every tenth respondent, that is, 13% of respondents.
