Draft law required to form urban agglomerations is ready for Parliament’s consideration

On 21 March 21 2018, the Parliamentary Committee on State Building, Regional Policy and Local Self-Government recommended the Verkhovna Rada to adopt draft law No 6743 "On Urban Agglomerations" in the first reading.

This draft law defines the organisational and legal principles of the formation of urban agglomerations by hromadas of villages, settlements and cities, including amalgamated hromadas, principles and mechanisms of interaction of hromadas within urban agglomerations, as well as forms of support of urban agglomerations by the state.

"The cities of oblast significance fell out of the process of establishment of amalgamated hromadas. As a result, capable hromadas began to form around large cities. They have a common infrastructure and common interests with the cities, so there is a close relationship between them. Therefore, there should be tools allowing to harmonise the development of large cities and suburban areas. Creation of agglomerations can be one of such tools," said Serhiy Sharshov, Director General of the Directorate for the Development of Local Self-Government, Territorial Organisation of Power and Administrative-Territorial Structure of MinRegion, supporting the draft law.

It is worth mentioning that the draft law is included in the list of draft laws important for the continuation of the decentralisation process.
