On November 30, 2019, a round table under the topic “Current problems of urban development decisions on the formation of the Moscow transport infrastructure” was held in the Moscow City Duma. Among the decisions made was the creation of a working group to prevent or resolve conflict situations in the implementation of urban development projects.
Elena Nikolaeva, Chairperson of the Committee on Urban Planning, State Property and Land Use, Head of the Permanent Deputy Association “My Moscow”: ‘We received numerous appeals from residents of the districts who express diametrically opposite opinions. We invited the authors of these appeals to participate in the round table. The main goal is to objectively understand the situation, since the development of an urban environment is impossible without a compromise of all citizens’.
Elena Nikolaeva summed up the outcomes of the round table and announced the key points of the resolution. Among them was a proposal to continue the parliamentary practice of holding meetings, round tables and meetings of the Moscow City Duma’s commissions on issues and problems in the sphere of construction, formation of transport and other types of infrastructure in Moscow.
‘In addition, in order to prevent and resolve conflicts during the implementation of city planning decisions on the formation of the transport infrastructure, we suggest considering the possibility of creating a conflict commission (operational working group), including representatives of the legislative and executive authorities of Moscow, public associations and residents of the capital’, Elena Nikolaeva said.
