Under the new law to build housing on agricultural land, and they recognized horticultural areas, will be prohibited. They will be engaged only in agriculture and build "farm buildings and structures not intended for the residence of citizens."
As a result, owners of large tracts of land would be in a difficult situation. Only in the Leningrad region of 6% of land is privately owned, 90% of them - this is agricultural land. According to the Petersburg real estate, today in the Leningrad region there are about 130 cottage villages, most of whom - with the permitted use under the country construction (chalet-for-profit partnership - DNP). 64% of settlements built on agricultural lands.
"All our facilities are located on agricultural lands", - stressed the head of group of companies "Stinco Sergei Fedenko. He believes that with the adoption of the law, most merchants will be forced to cease business associated with this category of land. According to the law on dacha can be accommodated dwelling house, but only if the site is within the boundaries of the settlement. Developers need to urgently transfer land from one category to another, leading to its more expensive and may take more than 2 years.

An additional complexity, it sees that in Leningrad, not all settlements have general plans, or simply their boundaries are not defined.
