Service group: Urban planning
In the planning of streets and parks, the City of Vantaa considers the needs of residents, nature and the built environment in a way that is sustainable and increases attractiveness.
Vantaa’s land and housing policies enable the management of land use, construction and land markets as well as balancing of the city's economy.
Building control contributes to the creation and maintenance of a healthy, safe and comfortable built environment by providing guidance and advice to designers, builders, developers and property owners.
Soil conditions can have a significant impact on construction solutions and costs. You can order previous soil surveys and soil data from the city.
The master plan is a general plan for the entire municipality's land use and the organisation of transport.
The City of Vantaa sells and rents land for both residential and business purposes. You can also sell your land to the city.
As the local building control authority, Vantaa grants permits for construction and alteration projects, provides instructions for construction, and sells and rents land to local authorities and companies.
Various permits are required to perform different activities in the municipality. Vantaa issues permits in its area for such activities as construction, event organisation, restaurant operations and the sale of tobacco products.
