The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine continues the process of transferring agricultural land outside settlements to the communal ownership of amalgamated hromadas, initiated in February this year, and counts on responsibility of local leadership and effective use of the provided resource, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the meeting on development of mountainous settlements, held within the framework of a working visit of the Head of Government to the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast.
"In 2014, we began the decentralisation process. And hromadas already feel their strength. But they must also be capable in terms of land resources. The Government has found a mechanism for transferring land to AHs, and today 6 more AHs have received land in their ownership. Each month we plan to transfer land to 50-70 amalgamated hromadas and complete this process by the end of the year," said the Head of Government.
During the meeting the documents on land transfer were signed by the heads of the following AHs:
Zabolotivska settlement and Kosmatska village AHs of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast;
Nyzhankobytska settlement and Hrabovetska village AHs of the Lviv Oblast;
Vyzhnytska town AH and Vashkivetska town AH of the Chernivtsi Oblast.
According to the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, the hromadas received more than 2.4 thousand hectares of land.
"I would like to ask the heads of the AHs to manage the land and funds publicly. Local residents must know the use of every hryvnia," said Volodymyr Groysman.
The Head of Government also reminded that the StateGeoCadastre, the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and the Ministry of Justice should gain momentum, quickly form and register the land plots and rights to them, in order to complete the work by the end of the year.
In Ukraine there are currently 665 established AHs, that have already signed memorandums on the transfer of land with the regional authorities of the State Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre (StateGeoCadastre).
At the end of January this year, the Prime Minister said that the Cabinet of Ministers found the optimal legal solution and was ready to begin the process of transferring land outside settlements to amalgamated hromadas from February. Since 1 February, the structures of the StateGeoCadastre have been deprived of the right to make decisions on the disposal of land outside settlements on their own, without the consent of AHs.
On 27 February, the land plots with a total area of 7 810.93 hectares were received into communal ownership by seven AHs: the Horodyshchenska village AH of the Lutsk Rayon of the Volyn Oblast (926.48 hectares); Hirsivska village AH and Pryazovska settlement AH of the Pryazovske Rayon of the Zaporizhzhya Oblast (798.48 hectares and 705.16 hectares respectively); the Smyrnovska village AH of the Bialmak Rayon of the Zaporizhzhya Oblast (1 568.74 ha); the Pomichnyanska town AH of the Dobrovelychkivka Rayon of the Kirovohrad Oblast (70.57 ha); the Obolonska village AH of the Semenivka Rayon of the Poltava Oblast (2 950.42 ha); the Natalynska village AH of the Krasnohrad Rayon of the Kharkiv Oblast (791.08 ha).
100% of the land plots on the territory of these AHs were formed with their data entered into the State Land Cadastre, which enabled the transfer in the short term – within two weeks after receiving the relevant application by the chief directorate of the land service. The procedure did not require any expenditure from the state budget.
