Tbilisi City Hall Plans to Remove Eliava Market through Legislative Amendments

Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze released a special statement that Tbilisi government is working on legislative amendments to ban sales of used spares, scarp iron, inflammable substances, used tires and similar products in residential zones of Tbilisi.

Eliava Market is an evident sample of trading in similar products, Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said.

Tbilisi City Hall will allocate special zones for similar trade activities, he added.

Besides Eliava Market, the mentioned restrictions will apply to other trade centers in Tbilisi, where today scrap iron, used tires and other similar products are sold.

“We plan to introduce one more bill to resolve ecological problems from emission. One of these regulations will strictly control a placement of used tires, ferrous and nonferrous metal, scrap iron, used spares, inflammable and explosive substances. The new regulations will also ban sales of the mentioned products and in certain zones new regulations will regulate placement details.

Certain buffer spaces should be arranged between residential zones, Kaladze said.
