Procedure for approval of land management project simplified
The amendments to Article 1861 of the Land Code of Ukraine regarding simplification of the procedure for approval of the land management project introduced on 11 February 2015 became effective on 12 March 2015. Such amendments were due to the need to eliminate delays during the procedure for approval of the land management projects.
As of now, the executive authorities in their conclusion to refuse approval of a land management project on allotment of a land plot shall provide the exhaustive list of defects of the land management project and provide reasonable term to cure such defects. Upon written request of the developer of a project such term might be extended.
The executive authorities may refuse approval of a land management project on allotment of a land plot only when the defects specified in the previous conclusion were not cured. It is forbidden to refuse approval due to other reasons or specify other defects.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that repeated refusal does not disqualify the developer of a land management project on allotment of a land plot to cure the defects of the project and submit it for approval.
