St. Petersburg official on the construction of the temple without documents: "It is decided from above"

Yesterday, January 29, public hearings were held in the Primorsky District of St. Petersburg on the adjustment of land use and development rules, in which one of the local residents asked why a temple was being built at the intersection of Shkolnaya and Savushkina streets without any documents.
“How can the church of God be built without permission? This has been decided from above. You are Orthodox people,” the deputy head of the district Andrei Khobets told her.
“A huge 32-meter-long building is planned. There were no public hearings on the excess of altitude. Although according to the rules there is 17 meters. We know that the parish began to build a small temple there, which nobody knows about. We received answers to our requests to the authorities, that it will be a temporary structure, which will then be disassembled. Although in reality it is built of concrete blocks, it is capital construction. According to our information, there is no gradlana, no planning project, or permission from Gosstroynadzor.We wrote to the prosecutor about this situation. The prosecutor's office forwarded the request to the KGA [Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture], KGA, to our great surprise, recommended the parish to obtain the necessary documents. After that, the second time we wrote to the prosecutor that the KGA is actually trying to legitimize illegal construction. I have a question, why do we have separate conditions for construction for the ROC, whereas no investor in the city has the right to build without permits? ”Asked a resident of the district.
The KGA employee Tatyana Semashko, who was present at the hearings, responded that this question was not related to the topic of discussion. And Andrei Khobets added: "How can the church of God be built without permission? This has been decided from above. You are Orthodox people."
