Ukrainian president vetoes law simplifying city planning

Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych has vetoed the law “On the regulation of city planning activity” and submitted propositions for its change to parliament. The law had previously been criticised by several groups as abolishes mandatory public hearings and assessments of the environmental and architectural impact for urban development construction projects.

The law was initially passed on January 13, 2011; it is very likely that parliament will approve of the presidential amendments instead of overriding it.
