Programmes and strategies – land use and building

In addition to regulations and administrative decisions, there are also a number of programmes and strategies that control land use and building.

Near-future goals concerning land use and building are defined in the Ministry of the Environment Strategy which emphasises, for example, low-carbon approaches and material efficiency in buildings’ life cycles and sustainable urban development.

Other national programmes related to land use and building include:

  • government decision on national land use guidelines
  • KIRA-digi (digitalisation of the built environment and construction)
  • wood building action plan
  • national action plan for sustainable urban development
  • metropolitan policy
  • cultural environment strategy
  • shore area strategy
  • government resolution on noise abatement
  • comprehensive approach to regional structure and transport
