Considering that Ukraine undergoes an active reform of the land and construction sectors, the sphere of town planning is automatically changing.
On 2 and 9 June 2021, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine adopted Resolutions No. 654 "On approval of the classification of restrictions in the use of lands that can be established by a comprehensive plan for the spatial development of a territorial community's territory, a master plan and a detailed plan of the territory" ("Resolution 654") and No. 632 "On the specification of the format of electronic documents for a comprehensive plan for the spatial development of a territorial community's territory, a master plan for a settlement, a detailed plan of the territory" ("Resolution 632").
The Resolutions will enter into force on 24 July 2021, along with the Law "On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Concerning Land Use Planning".
With the adoption of the Resolutions, it will be necessary to enter new data on land classification into the new town planning documentation. Moreover, the formats in which this documentation will be developed are written out.
Under Resolution 654, all town planning documentation will have to include data on the following restrictions on land use:
Additionally, Resolution 632 sets out that all urban planning documentation will be developed as a package of files in the following formats:
Packages of files in enlisted formats are provided as ZIP archives.
In general, both Resolutions introduce amendments to the requirements for town planning documents, which should positively affect the quality of new documents and the planning of the use of territories in general.
