What is a public area plan?

The public area plan sets out the current state of the area’s networks and street and green areas, determines their improvement needs, and presents proposals for projects for development. A public area plan was previously known as an area plan. On the basis of discussion between and the views of residents and experts, ideas suggested are planned in further detail and implemented within the financial means of the City over the next ten years. The plan does not cover the yards of schools and daycare centres, and nor does it encompass sports parks or local sports facilities. Furthermore, a public area plan does not involve land use planning, such as detailed planning.

The objectives of nature and landscape management are determined as a part of a public area plan. Once the plan has been approved, a more detailed nature and landscape management plan is created, drawn up in collaboration with residents and organisations.

The planning materials are available online (in Finnish)
