Land Market and Urban Development in Russia: Problems of Nonspecified Property Rights and the State Quasimonopoly on Land

Regional Research of Russia. 2011. Vol. 1. No. 3. P. 264-274.
Limonov L. E., Vakhrusheva K.

Land relations in Russia have traditionally been one of the thorniest issues at any time. An analysis of land relations development during recent decades and the causes of many land use problems leads us to conclude that the public ownership of the majority of land and non-specified property and land use rights serve as a serious impediment to the effective use of land resources in Russia. To evaluate influence of land relations on urban development a survey of experts’ opinions was conducted in St. Petersburg. The results of the survey allowed to identify main problems in land market regulation and gaps in St. Petersburg legislation on urban development and planning. In conclusion there were defined some measures, which should be done to improve the system of land relations and urban development in Russia.
