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.
The master plan is a general plan for the entire municipality's land use and the organisation of transport.
A local detailed plan regulates the purposes for which an area can be used and how much can be built in the area.
Planning is a multi-stage process in which people and businesses in the region can participate. The planning process begins with a participation and assessment plan.
Vantaa is being developed by building parks and streets, as well as by planning housing, places of employment and public services. To preserve green areas, areas near district centres with good public transport links are mainly being developed.
Planning is used to regulate where residential areas, places of employment, green areas and traffic routes are located in the city. Land use planning is divided into different layers: a more general master plan guides the local detailed plans.
