The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has approved an order that deprives the offices of the State Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre (StateGeoCadastre) to take decisions single-handedly on issues pertaining to the management of the land located outside settlements without the consent of the united territorial communities. The decision was adopted on the initiative of Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.
"Starting from tomorrow, none of the offices of StateGeoCadastre will have the right to approve decisions unilaterally", the Prime Minister claimed.
At the end of January, the Prime Minister briefed that the Government has already found the best possible legal solution and is poised to kick off a process of transferring of land that is located outside the boundaries of a settlement into ownership of amalgamated territorial communities. According to the Government decision, from February communities will be vested with the powers to regulate all land matters.
