Infralex head of practice Sergey Shumilov has commented to the website “Pravo.ru”
on the case of a forest plot privatization (№ 306-кг16-7898
). Tolyatti municipal authorities transferred to a commercial
company a parcel of land occupied by health resort. The Federal Service For State
Registration, Cadastre and Cartography (Rosreestr) revealed however that the
parcel in question is in fact a parcel of forest land.
Privatization of timber land is prohibited. The case has been considered by the
Russian Supreme Court. According to Sergey Shumilov, there can be complicated collisions
between forest organization and town-planning documents.
