Available land for Far East allotments will increase to 10 million hectares

In Primorsky Territory the area of ​​land available for allotment within the “Far Eastern hectare” program will increase to more than 10 million hectares. The corresponding draft resolution has already been prepared, according to the press service of the Primorye administration.

The increase will consist of sites within the boundaries of current hunting grounds. The lands will be available from 1 October.

“The presence of hunting grounds on an area of more than 10 million hectares will not be a reason to refuse land allotment to citizens under the federal law. This area is ​​more than half the total area of ​​the province,” said representatives of the Primorsky Territory Administration.

Recall that in July 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a package of amendments to the law on “the Far Eastern hectare,” which allows allotment of free sites within the boundaries of current hunting grounds.

Primorye is among the first three territories to allot “Far Eastern hectares”. More than five thousand sites have already been provided for the use of citizens. Since the beginning of the implementation of the law, about 40,000 applications have been submitted to the authorized bodies of Primorye territory alone.

According to the deputy minister of the Ministry of the Interior, residents of Moscow, Moscow region, St. Petersburg, Leningrad region, Krasnodar region and Sverdlovsk region are leading interest in the program.

“We do not need to exchange documents in paper. The whole interaction is being conducted through the each citizen’s personal profile, who is registered at the portal надальнийвосток.рф. Within the framework of this electronic profile, there is a connection with all the administrative bodies that provide the land. The exchange of contracts and cadastral documents is also electronic,” said Sergei Kachaev, Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East.

According to citizens, the most popular land uses are building a house, farming, gardening, leisure and recreation, and entrepreneurship.
