A group of deputies of the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg came up with a proposal to allow young families to use mother’s capital for gasification of housing. Deputies Denis Chetyrbok, Marina Makarova and Alexander Rzhanenkov came up with such an initiative.
The state program includes the construction of a gas pipeline to the boundaries of the land. However, the work of distributing gas inside the house, as well as the purchase of the necessary equipment, remain on the shoulders of homeowners.
Deputy Chetyrbok noted that in order to gasify the house, it is necessary to develop a project, lay a pipe into the premises, buy the necessary house equipment: a gas stove, a meter, a gas pollution control system, and so on. In general, the costs can be over 200 thousand rubles. “Of course, for many this is an unbearable burden, especially for young families, and here, I think, maternity capital could be a good help,” explained deputy Denis Chetyrbok.
The proposed initiative applies to households in the Leningrad region.
