Additional information

The plan amendment is an update to the old 1960s building plan, still in force in Itäranta, allowing the plan to conform to current practices. The intention is to preserve the valuable buildings and environment with plan symbols and protection orders. The borders of block, street and park areas, as well as the plan’s content, will be amended as necessary. Furthermore, the possibility of replacing the carpark at Harjuviita 5 with housing units will be reviewed.
