Master plan for the northern and central areas of Espoo, 722300

Master plan for the northern and central areas of EspooThe master plan for the northern and central parts of Espoo cover more than half of Espoo´s land area. The area features both village-like and urban environments as well as a variety of natural and environmental values.

The preparation of the effective master plan for northern Espoo was initiated in 1984, and part I gained legal force in 1997. Part I of the master plan for northern Espoo can no longer fully respond to the challenges of a changing city and developing region.

The master plan will support the City of Espoo's growth goals by creating the prerequisites for good public transport and the future of the Länsirata track through unifying land use solutions. The plan aims to ensure that the city's annual goal of 2,500 housing units is reached.

The preparation of the master plan will give due consideration to mitigating climate change and finding ways to reach the emission reduction goals.

The City Planning Department issued a building prohibition for numerous areas in the master plan area on 25 May 2016 and 8 June 2016.
