Construction of linear objects to simplify from September, 1
Since September, 1 of this year, the federal law that simplifies construction and reconstruction of linear objects comes into force. The document introduces the concept of public easement – encumbrances on the land plot imposed by authorities – for the construction of linear objects.
To the category of linear objects include power lines and communications, water and gas pipelines, sewerage, heating mains.
As reported in the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, at the moment the time for registering rights to land and construction of line facilities averages about a year. With the entry into force of the new legislative act, experts expect the time limits for these procedures to be reduced by 3-4 times. This will happen due to the cancellation of the need for the formation of a land plot, cadastral work, changes in the intended purpose and permitted use.
In addition, the new law gives the Russian government the right to determine the list of facilities that do not require a building permit.
