City planning

The City Planning Department is in charge of the planning of Espoo land use

Urban planning focuses on laying out plans on how land will be used. In land use plans, separate areas are reserved for housing, work places, services, traffic and green zones. A town plan is needed, for instance, when planning a new region or the services of an existing region or when changing traffic arrangements.

The master plan directs the town plan, which is more specific and determines what a particular area can be used for and what type of single-family house can be built on a certain plot, for example.  

The opinions of the municipality residents and making an impact
Those municipality residents whom the planning concerns can at this stage express their opinions on the material. Larger projects will be planned in co-operation with the residents and operators of the area in different resident workshops, the details of which will be notified separately.
