Reform of State Architectural and Construction Inspection of Ukraine – opportunities to eliminate problem issues in the inspection’s work
On August 19, 2020, a working meeting on reforming the State Architectural and Construction Inspection was held under the chairmanship of the head of the Kherson Regional State Administration Yuriy Husyev with the participation of People’s Deputy of Ukraine, Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on the Organization of State Power, Local Self-Government, Regional Development and Urban Planning Olena Shulyak as well as People’s Deputies of Ukraine Volodymyr Ivanov and Oleksiy Kovalev.
Representatives of the regional building companies and heads of enterprises with foreign investments participated in the meeting.
Problematic issues related to obtaining/registration of documents giving the right to perform preparatory and construction work, permiting exploitation of completed construction projects, as well as obtaining other permits that fall within the competence of the State Architectural and Construction Inspection of Ukraine were discussed.
Also, People’s Deputies discussed with business representatives the specifics of institution’s work and proposals on procedures for resolving controversial issues during transition period.
All propositions and comments of Kherson entrepreneurs will be analyzed and considered by the profile Committee of Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in order to improve work of the newly created institutions.
Let us remind that according to Resolution No. 218, the State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate was liquidated and a new central executive body the State Urban Development Service of Ukraine was created.
Its main tasks are provision (receipt, registration), refusal to issue or cancellation of documents giving the right to perform preparatory and construction works, permitting exploitation of completed construction projects.
Another Resolution of the CMU No. 219 on March 13, 2020 established two more central executive authorities: the State Inspection of Urban Development of Ukraine and the State Agency for Technical Regulation on Urban Development of Ukraine.
These authority bodies will implement state policy on issues of state architectural and construction control and supervision and technical regulation in the field of urban planning respectively.
