Master planning

Master planning includes urban planning documentation that defines the planning pattern, land use planning, housing development, cultural, social and transportation services; and engineering support.


The necessity of master planning is regulated by Federal Law No. 190-FZ -- “Urban Planning Code of the Russian Federation” -- as of December 29, 2004 and is conditioned by the absence of the approved urban planning documentation for the area in question, as well as changes in the designated use of the land.


The master planning documentation is developed in order to ensure sustainable territorial development, single out the elements of the planning pattern (districts, housing developments, and other elements), and delineate the land plots with capital construction sites and those intended for construction and location of infrastructure facilities.


The master planning draft comprises the core component subject to approval and the documents used for its substantiation.


Core Component of Master Planning:

  • Master planning sketch with specification of the following elements:
    • building lines;
    • road, street, lane lines, communication lines, engineering and transportation infrastructure facilities, access paths to public water bodies and their coastal lines;
    • boundaries of future capital construction sites.
  • An explanatory note comprising provisions on the location of capital construction sites, characteristic features of future territorial development (both in terms of territorial development density and parameters), characteristic features of social and transportation services, and engineering and technical support.


Master planning substantiation materials:

  •  Visual section:
    • layout of planning pattern elements;
    • layout of the designated use of the area during master planning development;
    • road network map;
    • boundary plan of cultural heritage sites;
    • boundary plan of zones characterized by specific territorial use conditions;
    • layout of vertical planning and engineering development of the area.
  • Explanatory note:
    • future construction features, including social, transportation facilities, engineering and technical facilities required for territorial development;
    • protection of the area from natural and technogenic emergencies, implementation of civil defense and fire safety measures. Introduction of “green” technologies is purely declarative.
