MOSCOW, November 10 (Itar-Tass) — The overall planning of Moscow in new borders should be ready in 2014, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Saturday.
Town-planning documents on the expansion of Moscow should be worked out shortly, Sobyanin said. “The most part of settlements has no such documents. New territories have only five overall plans of city areas and country settlements, as well as 147 planning schemes,” the Moscow mayor said at a session devoted to developing new territories.
“This planning is not linked with the general image, which does not meet the tasks of the development of the megapolis,” the mayor said.
He set the task to work out an overall planning of Moscow in new borders not later than in 2014.
“In order not to turn out to be in legal vacuum a scheme of new territories will be worked out for the transition period,” Sobyanin added.
