City planning

Aurinkoinen ja lämmin kesäpäivä. Kuopion Hatsalankatu jonka varrella on uudisrakennuksia ja vanhoja suojeltuja rakennuksia.

City planning creates the preconditions for construction, and the city plan describes the area in more detail than the master plan. The city plan defines the principles of land use and construction, taking into account local conditions, urban and landscape image, good construction practice and other jointly agreed objectives. The city planning activities are guided and monitored by the Urban Structure Board. 

The City of Kuopio prepares a zoning review once a year, which includes a review of pending city plans and changes to city plans that will be pending in the near future. 

All valid city plans can be found in the Kuopio Map Service
