MARAT KHUSNULLIN: LAW ON RENOVATION ALLOW TO SHORTEN HOUSEBUILDING BY 30%
Deputy Mayor for Urban Policy and Construction Marat Khusnullin told in an interview with “Arguments & facts” that adoption of new federal law on renovation will allow to shorten a number of administrative procedures and housebuilding periods by 30%.
«Today a construction of 20,000 m2 building takes 24 months. We have managed to build in 15 months. But more than 4 years pass from an idea up to commissioning of a house. Why? It is necessary to pass through 112 procedures over this period of time, 66 of them are regulated by different federal laws», – stated Marat Khusnullin.
He emphasized that it is possible to shorten housebuilding period by one-third in case of reducing a number of coordinations.
«Every year worth its weight in gold during such a period of time like we have for renovation program. What for we are starting renovation? We are making this in order to deconstruct dilapidated houses until they turn into wrecks. If we are not in time and houses start to crumble we will have to resettle people as a matter of urgency», – explained the Head of Urban Development and Construction Complex (“Construction Complex”).
As Khusnullin noted, in this case inhabitants will not have the right to choose a residence. «Under the emergency housing law inhabitants are being resettled to vacant flats that the city has at this moment. And this might be not another neighborhood but another district», – said Marat Khusnullin.
