“Today, in the process of decentralisation, development planning, forecasting and rational use of land are important for AHs. Therefore, we, as the Odesa LGDC, decided to hold such an event for the architects and land managers of amalgamated hromadas from all over Ukraine, as well as for the chief architects of the rayons. During panel discussions, the school participants discussed the issues of land transfer to AHs (for example, more than 10 hromadas of the Odesa Oblast have already received land outside settlements), cooperation with the StateGeoCadastre, spatial planning, etc.,” said Yuliya Molodozhen, Director of the Odesa LGDC.
The National Summer School on Spatial Planning is being held for the first time on the initiative of the Odesa Local Government Development Centre.
