It was proposed to allow the demolition of any housing under the renovation program in Russia

A bill has been submitted to the State Duma that allows regional authorities to resort to forced confiscation from the owners of any housing - not only emergency ones - for the sake of the regional renovation programs.

It is assumed that the decision to demolish the building and resettlement can be made with the consent of two-thirds of the owners and tenants.

According to Kommersant, they want to allow the regions of Russia to approve their own renovation programs by analogy with Moscow. It is assumed that the decision to demolish the building and resettlement can be made with the consent of two-thirds of the owners and tenants. It is allowed to exclude a house from the program by one third of votes. The procedure for counting votes should be determined by local authorities. In return for the square meters in the demolished building, the owners are required to provide an equivalent housing in the same area or monetary compensation - at the choice of the tenants.

Local authorities should seek funding for renovation programs on their own, without burdening the federal budget.

“The draft amendments to the Urban Planning, Housing and Land Codes of the Russian Federation were submitted to the State Duma by senators Nikolai Zhuravlev, Oleg Melnichenko, Andrey Shevchenko and the head of the parliamentary committee for transport and construction Yevgeny Moskvichyov”, - the newspaper writes.

It is noteworthy that if previously new housing was built only on the site of an emergency and subject to demolition, now whole neighborhoods in which there are quite solid houses can fall under the renovation program. The authorities will be able to make a decision on their demolition if 50% of a certain territory is occupied by emergency housing, unauthorized buildings or apartment buildings included in the targeted demolition and reconstruction program.

According to The Insider, a similar bill, involving the integrated development of territories with the compulsory seizure of real estate for municipal needs at the initiative of municipalities, was already submitted to the State Duma in 2018. But he was criticized and recalled. The document assumed the inclusion of houses in the renovation program with the consent of two thirds, and 100% of the residents. It also contained a requirement to provide separate apartments to residents of communal apartments.

The draft of the new law on renovation was criticized by State Duma deputy Galina Khovanskaya.

“The project speaks about the complex development of the territory, provided that half of it is made up of certain buildings. And the remaining 50% - what, in general, any houses? How can it be?" - Kommersant quotes the words of Khovanskaya.
