Legal regulations for industrial zones to adopt in Quarter II, 2016
The new document which regulates legal relations in the territories of reorganized industrial zones may appear in the near future, reported Oleg Soroka, Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Urban Planning, Land Management and National Property of the Moscow City Duma.
“Our bill proposes to introduce a new kind of urban planning documentation: a Development Concept of industrial and communal areas, which will regulate the legal relations in industrial zone, intended to reorganization,” said Oleg Soroka in an interview to “Interfax”.
According to him, today large development companies often have to persuade the owners of small land plots or facilities to participate in development projects.
“There may be dozens of owners with canine appetite, and each one possesses a hovel on a given land. Initially, even legislators had different approaches to solving this problem. Offers prepared by the Moscow government and approved by the Ministry of Construction, radically change the situation,” noted Soroka.
According to Oleg Soroka, the bill passed its first reading in the State Duma. It provides rights to decide development plans of industrial and municipal areas, to define their boundaries, functional areas and the order of implementation of projects to the subjects of the Russian Federation.
“The subject of the Federation must approve a so-called Development Concept of industrial areas. Today, the Construction Code of the Russian Federation involves several town-planning documents, such as the City Master Plan, a boundary survey plan or an area planning design (PPT),” said the deputy.
He said that the status of this document will be “lower” than the City Master Plan, other city-planning documentation will be developed on the basis of it.
“We thus hope that the law will be adopted in the Quarter II of this year,” said Oleg Soroka.
