KYIV. April 14 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Verkhovna Rada has adopted the law on amendments to some legislative acts concerning the decentralization of authority in state architectural and construction control and the improvement of urban planning legislation.
All in all, 306 deputies voted for law No. 1546.
The law transfers the implementation of state architectural and construction control from the central executive authority to local self-governance and executive authorities, and simplifies certain licensing and conciliation procedures in construction.
The central authorities which currently implement state policy on architectural and construction control will fulfill the functions until they are transferred to local authorities.
The law also improves the procedure of filing a declaration on the implementation of preparatory and construction work, shortens the term of issuing technical conditions in the relevant field, and increases legal responsibility.
