land use, building, land use planning, zoning, digitalisation
The development project concerning land use decisions to be made in the future was implemented in broad cooperation between the relevant stakeholders during 2019. The aim of the project was to promote the digitalisation of decisions relating to land use planning and building, i.e. land use decisions, knowledge-based decision-making and usability of information on the national scale.
The project concerning land use decisions in the future established harmonised national guidelines to promote digitalisation. The project defined the objectives and roadmap for digitalisation and the measures to support this.
In the measures implemented during the project a particular focus was on information flows between municipal zoning and building permit procedures and national-scale access to information on decisions and initial data related to these. Among the important first-stage measures was the launch of the work on a reference architecture for land use decisions and promotion of national dialogue on the processes, information flows and national services we should aim for in the land use planning and building sectors.
It is also important to assess the societal impacts of digitalisation, especially in terms of the costs and benefits to the different stakeholders.
This report presents the key results of the project and the measures implemented during the process.
The findings of the project will be used in the overhaul of the Land Use and Building Act and in the implementation of the national register and data platform for the built environment proposed in the Government Programme.
