Проект апарт-отеля на берегу моря в Светлогорске будет изменен

The project of apart-hotel which a private investor planned to build on the Baltic sea coast in the resort town Svetlogorsk, be changed, said acting Governor of the Kaliningrad region Anton Alikhanov broadcast on regional television.

Project 14-storey Aparthotel on the shore of the sea, which because of the shape of Kaliningradians called “glass” has caused sharp discontent not only local residents but also representatives from environmental and social organizations, in the seaside city held several protests. The Russian geographical society and public movement “Our beach” appealed to regional authorities to prohibit construction of the coastal part to the emergence of an integrated urban development concept of Svetlogorsk.

“Glass” will not. The idea of building such a tall building was born out of necessity to ensure the normal descent. Normal access to the boardwalk there. The idea was to build a lift. And this thought and further transformation of the “glass” in the “barrel” was born under the guise of the idea of the necessity of this Elevator,” said Alikhanov.

He noted that the regional government has listened to the views of residents and the public, a permit for the construction of a building on the seafront, the investor has not received.

“The permission for the construction of certain reasons nobody gave and nobody will give authority since January 1 will go to us and we will discuss in detail, the enormous structure on the shore almost with a helipad, this in Svetlogorsk will not be exact”, added the chief Executive officer.

From 1 January 2017 town planning powers will be transferred from the municipal to the regional level. The competent regional government authorities take on the responsibility for issuing permits for construction and commissioning, delivery of development plans for land plots. In the competence of local authorities will be holding public hearings, the programme of integrated development of infrastructure solutions for the integrated development of territories.
