Got approve resolution on transfer of land outside towns to ownership of communities
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved a resolution on the transfer of land outside towns to ownership of merged communities.
The document was passed at a government meeting on Wednesday.
"The stocktaking of state-owned land that is to be transferred to the merged territorial communities will start tomorrow and last until the end of the year," First Deputy Agricultural Policy and Food Minister of Ukraine Maskym Martyniuk said at the meeting.
He said that these are 760,000 ha of land.
"We will be ready to cover 50% of the cost of this land [fees for land utilization documents]. However, I think that merged territorial communities can do this themselves," Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said.
As reported, Groysman announced an order that the State Service for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre to transfer all land to management of territorial communities.
"The merged territorial communities control their territory only within towns. Outside of them the land that in principle should belong to the communities is governed by the state. The heads of the merged communities raise the issue of completely transferring the land to the administration of the communities," the prime minister said.
He recalled that discussions are being held in the parliament on this issue, but the people's deputies have not reached a final decision. The government decided to solve the issue via passing a government resolution.
