Authorities in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous district intend to 1.5-fold increase in new housing construction to implement the may decree of the President of Russia, said in an interview with RIA Novosti acting Governor Dmitry Artyukhov.

According to him, the most significant challenge that must be met to complete the may decree the construction of the required amount of housing, as on the Yamal Peninsula there is a significant amount of dilapidated and emergency Fund.

«By 2022, we plan to eliminate 336 thousand square meters of dilapidated housing and relocate 8,5 thousand families. This is really one of the main issues that worries the residents. There are different approaches. First and foremost, of course, we will build new homes. Need one and a half times to increase the volume of injection meters», — said the acting Governor.

He noted that in addition to the construction of permanent housing for northerners considered the issue of allocation of rental apartments. «Perhaps, for some categories of northerners rental housing will be the solution. We are actively cooperating with the Ministry of construction of Russia, to run this direction in the near future in the pilot municipalities – the city of Novy Urengoy and Gubkinskiy», — said Artyukhov.
