According to him, the indicators of the current General Plan, which is designed until 2020, are very outdated and have not met modern realities for a long time.
“In European countries, for example, master plans are updated every 5 years, in Beijing – every 3-4 years. According to Ukrainian legislation, amendments to master plans are also recommended every 5 years. In the capital, the General Plan has not been updated for almost 20 years. So, the current General Plan has completely lost its regulatory role, and underestimated indicators do not make it possible to realistically plan economic and social development programs, ”said Bronevitsky.
