Land Use and Building – seeking a healthy and vital residential and living environment

Land use and building planning creates the preconditions for a high-quality and vital built environment. Well-planned land use and building solutions promote well-being, vitality and sustainable development.

Land use and building is regulated by legislation and steered by the authorities. The objective of such steering is to:

  • create a healthy, safe and pleasant living environment which is socially functional and meets the needs of different population groups
  • ensure the high quality and energy efficiency of construction
  • make the urban structure more cohesive and compact, while promoting sustainable development
  • guarantee that everyone has the opportunity to participate in land use and building planning.
