Mid-Urals Development Corporation explains construction delays

The Mid-Urals Development Corporation offered an explanation as to why construction has been delayed on the low-rise residential block in Istoksky by the new regional cabinet formation.

Director-General Sergey Filippov said that personnel changes in the cabinet have made it difficult to reach an agreement between the corporation and the Sverdlovsk region government, according to Ural Business Consulting.

The corporation also says the project has the support of the construction ministry.

'We gave this project our general support, and we intend to develop it. Under the existing agreement, the dwellings will primarily be offered to citizens who are entitled to new housing under the regional programs,' Construction and Architecture Minister Sergey Fedorov said, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Fedorov expects that by 2015, 60 percent of all new housing would be low-rise private houses.

The Istoksky village was involved in a criminal lawsuit last winter, resulting in a declaration that the housing was unfit.
