#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The State Duma adopted a law providing for the opportunity to provide citizens with a Far Eastern hectare on the territory of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation located in the Arctic zone. The second hectare will be given to those who have mastered the first.
The changes simplify the procedure for providing citizens with land plots in the Arctic zone for the construction of an individual residential building, housekeeping, and other economic activities.
The innovations will contribute to the involvement of unused land in economic circulation and an increase in tax revenues to local budgets. Taking into account the special climatic and socio-economic conditions of the Arctic zone, there will be a mechanism that will differ from the current one. Citizens have the right to choose land plots only in specially designated territories belonging to the Arctic zone – all of them are listed in the law.
At the same time, the law makes it possible to obtain an additional land plot of no more than one hectare in size for those who have mastered and registered the previously provided property or lease.
“Considering the availability of 226 million hectares of land (33 percent of the district’s territory) currently available in the Far Eastern Federal District for provision under the Far Eastern Hectare program (33 percent of the district’s territory), the changes proposed by the draft law will stimulate the development of the provided land plots by citizens and will involve a significant number of unused lands, which will have a positive impact on the economic development of the macroregion”, the explanatory note says.
Recall that a land plot is provided for a period of five years based on a free use agreement. After five years, the land will be given to the citizen for rent or ownership. As for the Arctic hectare, it will be provided according to the laws of the constituent entities of Russia. The list of recipients will be expanded, Norilsk and Taimyr will be in priority for receiving.
