Formation of capable hromadas in Sumy and Kharkiv regions: consulting on the development of long-term plans is underway

According to Deputy Minister of Hromadas and Territories Development Viacheslav Nehoda, it is too early so far to sum up the final number and configuration of hromadas in these regions.

'Today we have understood that the long-term plans for these regions have been worked out almost perfectly, but some proposals require supplementary consulting on the local level to adopt the best decision. Representatives of the relevant hromadas, field-oriented associations and experts should be involved in the discussions of the regional state administration. We have to elucidate all our would-be decisions, especially difficult issues, for we don't want any conflicts at the local level,' Viacheslav Nehoda said.

As you remember, on 5 December 2019, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a bill 'On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine 'On Voluntary Amalgamation of Territorial Hromadas (concerning simplification of the procedure for approval of long-term plans for the development of hromada territories of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and regions)’' No. 2189 of 30.09.2019. The bill stipulates that from now on amalgamation of hromadas will be carried out exclusively according to the long-term plan.

Anytime soon, the bill is to be signed by President of Ukraine.
