Project of area planning  (PAP) — document for designated area, which determines location zones of existing objects and their parameters, as well as zones of objects, which construction may be permitted.  It will be worked out  at the same time with area demarcation plan, which consists of  schemes of existing land parcel boundaries  and future land parcel boundaries.

Unlike general plan, which is a document with  enlarged ballpark figures, PAP — more detailed document of city-planning regulation, which contains frontage lines, objects and infrastructure.  Development plan for a land plot  (DPLP)  is given based on the approved PAP.  . DPLP  is required to obtain a building permit..
