The High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation petitioned the Mayor of Moscow with a proposal to consider amending the order of obtaining a resident parking permit for dwellers of communal flats.
“The High Commissioner receives appeals of Moscow car owners living in communal flats. They fail to execute their right to a resident parking permit”, the appeal says. According to the Moscow Government Resolution On Implementation of Paid City Parking in Moscow, two permits can be issued per apartment. Dwellers of communal flats have the right to parking but they need to provide approval of other rooms’ owners in order to receive the permit. If dwellers of a flat own more than two cars, a conflict arises and somebody of them fails to realise his right to resident parking.
Having examined the problem, Tatiana Moskalkova asked Sergey Sobyanin to remedy the injustice and do not make owners of rooms in communal flats to depend on will of their neighbors. The High Commissioner believes that the number of permits for communal flats’ dwellers should provide possibility to issue parking permits for every family whether it owns a separate housing or a room.
