The parties discussed the development of new crossing points on the Hungarian-Ukrainian border, which is 137 km long, where the Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg region of Hungary borders to Transcarpathia. The Hungarians are ready to open three new crossing points. The first one may be the crossing point Nagyhodos - Velyka Palad. Here, on the Hungarian side, 7.50 m wide road between the settlement of Nagyhodos and the state border has been built, and the bridge has been reconstructed. All preparatory work for the construction of a checkpoint and construction on the Hungarian side will be financed by Hungary. A common control system will be used there. On the Ukrainian side, it is necessary to build a road in length of 9 kilometers. The Hungarians believe that the project may be co-financed at the expense of the EU funds. Read more...
Several media spread the information that allegedly the prosecutors, at the request of one of the deputies, appealed the decision of the Uzhgorod City Council, which in 2010 approved the urban planning documentation for the individual residential development block around Stefanyk street in Uzhgorod.
Given the concerns about this issue, the prosecutor's office considers it necessary to explain the situation.
The grounds for the appeal the above decision of the city council are only a violations of certain requirements of the Land Code of Ukraine (Art. 181-183), Laws of Ukraine "On Land Management" (Art. 20, 51, 62), "On state examination of land documents" (Art. 9, 35) and "On planning and development" (Art. 1, 3) during the development and the city council's approval of the urban planning documentation for the individual residential development block on Stefanyk street, along the international highway M 08.
In particular, in order to justify the areas and boundaries of land plots to meet the requirements for rational land use and protection during the formation of a new individual residential development block around Stefanyk street, Uzhgorod City Council failed to develop appropriate land management projects for the establishment of new land ownership, land use.
Also, the urban planning documentation for the individual residential building block around Stefanik street did not pass the mandatory examination to determine the conformance of urban planning documentation to the legislation, state standards, rules and regulations.
To sum up, we emphasize that in the case of the appeal against the above mentioned illegal decision of Uzhgorod City Council session, the question of the abolition of citizens' land acts was not raised by prosecutors. Read more...
