Decentralisation creates opportunities for the development and growth of the economy in the newly formed hromadas, which have received wide powers and considerable resources. However, for the qualitative and effective use of these opportunities, it is necessary to clearly formulate a hromada development programme in order to modernise the infrastructure, extend business, and implement human potential not partially and chaotically, but in a planned and harmonious manner.
The Ovrutska AH was established in October 2017 and united 16 village councils around the city of Ovruch. 34 thousand residents and over 800 km² of area create a number of advantages and simultaneously threats for the hromada. After all, the development of such a large hromada requires significant resources.
In cooperation with the Zhytomyr Local Government Development Centre, established by the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion, in 2018 the hromada began elaborating its Development Strategy by 2027. On 8 March 2018, the first meeting of the Task Force was held, where the team considered the methodology for establishing such a strategic document.
"We must clearly identify the key priorities of our territories. It is necessary in order to strengthen the socio-economic development of the hromada and provide the population with jobs and high-quality municipal services," said Ivan Korud, head of the Ovruch City Council.
