Influencing the detailed shore planning process
The Lappeenranta detailed shore plan is mainly intended for steering the building of holiday homes in shore areas. The landowner is responsible for the preparation of the detailed shore plan. The city steers the detailed shore planning process as with other local detailed plans. The detailed shore plan includes a map, a report and a participation and assessment scheme. The City Development Committee, City Board or City Council approves the plan.
The detailed shore plan takes into account nature conservation, landscape values, recreational needs, water protection and the organisation of water supply. The detailed shore plan sets out detailed provisions on the arrangement of holiday homes and other land use in the shore area. The detailed shore plan defines the approximate placements of blocks and plots, building rights, uses and transport connections in the area. You can share your opinion on these things.
