The draft law on increasing liability in the urban planning sector was registered in the Parliament

01-09-2021

The Parliament registered draft law #5877 on increasing liability in the urban planning sector. BRDO experts participated in drafting the document.

The existing fines established by law are incomparable with possible damages as a result of illegal actions, so they should be reviewed and increased. Additionally, it is almost impossible to prove the guilt of, for example, certified persons in practice due to the imperfection of current laws.

In particular, the draft law provides for:

  • increasing in fines for offenses in the urban planning sector;
  • defining a clear range of entities that may be subject to administrative penalties;
  • dealing with unauthorized constructions with the help of temporary arrest of illegal construction objects;
  • increasing criminal liability for unauthorized constructions, including in the territories of cultural heritage objects.

Therefore, we call on the people’s deputies to support the draft law aimed at effective mechanisms of liability for offenses in the urban planning sector.
