Krasnodar, 23 April – Yug Times. According to a new law adopted by the Legislative Assembly of the Krasnodar region, construction of high-rise blocks will be banned at distances 500 m and less from sea.
The bill was developed on instructions of Governor Veniamin Kondratiev and adopted in the second reading. Its earlier version had provided for a ban on construction activities within 300 m from the seashore, but at the recent session the deputies discussed the possibility of expanding the ‘forbidden zone.’ Commenting on the bill, Chairman of the Legislative Assembly Yuri Burlachko was quoted as saying that the issue was considered at parliamentary hearings and thoroughly studied by the special work team. As a result, a series of amendments were suggested. According to them, all capital constructions built within 500 m off the seashore may not be higher than 20 m, except for resort infrastructure. The ‘forbidden zone’ will not refer to industrial and agricultural zones.
The new bill will apply to 10 municipalities around the Black and Azov Sea coasts: Anapa, Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk, Sochi, Yeisk, Primorsko-Akhtarsk, Slaviansk, Temriuk, Tuapse and Shcherbinovsky.
