Local master plan 2040

Planning map

The City Council approved the local master plan for the inner city 2040 unanimously on 15 May 2017.

The local master plan is based on the City Strategy guidelines set in the City Council’s term 2013‒2017. Out of the recognized challenges of change, it has focused on growth management, the operating conditions for the business and industrial sector, the stricter environmental requirements, the declining biodiversity, climate change mitigation and the prevention of a differentiation between city districts. The local master plan presents land use, traffic, housing and services as an entity for implementing a low-carbon urban structure of the future.

A key objective of the local master plan is to steer most of the increase in the population (about 60,000), in a controlled manner, to the city that has already been planned and built. On the basis of the local master plan, Tampere will make the city structure on the western and eastern sides of the epicentre more balanced. The growth has been steered to the structure that consists of centres and public transport areas, which improves the availability of services and promotes more versatile functions.

All four local master plan maps can be looked at via the City of Tampere’s map service. The maps are available via the Karttatasot menu, on the tab “Kantakaupungin yleiskaava 2040".
