Construction of linear facilities: possibility of using town-planning plans of land plots extended.

07.09.2011

Legal Update No. 271.

Federal Law No. 41-FZ dated 20 March 2011 has modified the Russian Federation Town Planning Code as follows:

Construction of linear facilities requires not town-planning plans of land plots but land plot use and survey plans. Practical execution of this provision is already causing serious difficulties.

For this purpose, there is a transitional rule set by Federal Law No. 246-FZ dated 19 July 2011 : up to 31 December 2012, land plot town-planning plans will be sufficient for land plots intended for (re)construction of linear facilities (Paragraph 4, Clause 4 of Federal Law No. 191-FZ of 29 December 2004 “On Enactment of the Russian Federation Town Planning Code”).

The amendment came into effect on 2 August 2011.
