The compensation price for cutting green plantation will increase several times – Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said at today’s government session.
He assigned his deputy Maia Bitadze to prepare the relevant draft law. According to Kakha Kaladze, the amount of compensation for one tree cut is 700 GEL, “which is really inadequate and unserious.”
Kaladze told the deputy minister that the parliament should be used to elaborate the bill.
According to him, the money transferred to the city budget from this direction will be used for planting, and arrangings squares and parks.
In addition, Kaladze asked Maya Beatadze to engage with the ecology and greening service at the initial stage of issuance of new constructions so that construction permits are not allowed at the expense of green spaces.
“As for the projects that are on the completion of the relevant procedures, but the compensation amount is not paid for the cutting of green plants, we will find that the interested person needs to shift and care for the green plants instead of compensation cuts,” Kaladze said.
