Housing construction on Likusterikatu

Local detailed plansMatinkylä

The local detailed plan will be amended to allow the construction of residential blocks of flats in the undeveloped residential block next to Opinmäki. The landowners’ intention is to construct residential blocks of flats in the block in which the dense construction of detached and semi-detached houses as per the current local detailed plan has not been realised. The permitted building volume will be increased, and parking will be centred in a multi-storey carpark. The location next to Opinmäki, bordered by an open landscape area, will be taken into account in the planning. The quality of yards, the functionality of traffic arrangements and stormwater management will also be considered in the planning.
