But at the same time as Anna told Sisetskaya, AO lawyer law firm "Vasil Kisil and Partners", the Act leaves a feeling of incompleteness and imbalance that ultimately does not allow developers and investors to take full advantage of innovations that are not backed stable and transparent mechanisms for their implementation, according to "building".
In turn, Timur Bondarev, managing partner of a lawyer association Arzinger, added: "The positive aspect of the Law - predicted the procedure for obtaining land rights for construction, reducing the time of issuance and number of permits, unlimited validity period, no need for coordination of project documentation."
However, like any other Town Planning Act is not perfect. Thus, since January 1, 2012, he prohibits the changing purpose of land, as well as to provide for ownership and use of communal land and public property for construction purposes - in the absence of properly developed planning documentation.
"In particular, it is a detailed site plan and zoning plans, which specify the data the master plan of the village. Since only a small fraction of the Ukrainian cities have master plans and even more detailed plans and zoning, we can expect that from the beginning of 2012 Investment Construction activities will be paralyzed if the legislator does not renew the transitional period for entry into force of this prohibition "- commented A. Sisetskaya.
