Moscow has simplified the placement of non-capital sports facilities
Sports infrastructure on land leased from the city can now be built without competitive events and with fewer approvals, Vladimir Efimov, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations, said.
“The Moscow government has approved an additional scheme for placing non-capital sports facilities in the capital, now investors can place sports facilities on rented plots without conducting additional competitive procedures and concluding new lease agreements. This measure will increase the number of sports facilities accessible to the population and increase the investment attractiveness of urban land plots”, – Vladimir Efimov said.
As the head of the department of urban property Maxim Gaman explained, in order to install sports facilities on rented land, it is necessary that they occupy no more than 70% of the territory, in plots with other types of permitted use – no more than 25%.
“Also, an object cannot have a foundation, and its deepening should not exceed 0.5 meters. The choice of materials for the design is limited: glass, aluminum, metal and wood”, – Maxim Gaman said.
The list of non-capital sports facilities includes fitness complexes, football courses, golf and baseball courts, open and indoor skating rinks, as well as auxiliary facilities, for example, locker rooms or equipment storage rooms.
