Abstract (English):
The article describes the legal foundations behind the development of agglomerations in Kuzbass based on the local law and the best practices in other regions. A balanced socio-economic and ecological development of agglomerations depends on the legal status of agglomeration and the legal actions necessary to obtain this status. An effective management of agglomeration processes requires special management bodies. The Kemerovo Region is relatively new to agglomeration development. The success of agglomeration processes largely depends on the quality of the regional regulatory laws since no proper legal regulation exists at the federal level. According to the regional Law on the Development of Agglomerations in the Kemerovo Region, urban agglomerations are a new type of special territorial units with special management goals and objectives. The best practice analysis resulted in a number of proposals aimed at improving the legal regulation of agglomeration processes in the Kemerovo Region. The regional law needs strategies and concepts of urban development, inter-municipal cooperation agreements, and a Coordinating Council to unify documentation on territorial planning and urban zoning.
