Planning process and participation
Residents and parties concerned can participate and influence planning of the Vantaa Light Rail in different ways. In addition to opinions and reminders, workshops and information events are held for residents.
Planning the light rail takes place on three parallel levels: street and park planning, local detailed plans and strategical plan. Strategical plan designates areas for the needs of, among other things, workplaces, traffic, nature and recreation. Residents and parties concerned can participate and influence planning of the Vantaa Light Rail.
Draft street plans, street plan proposals and local detailed plan proposals are presented to residents. Plans will be presented in stages by the beginning of the year 2023. The aim is for the local detailed plan proposals and the corresponding street plan proposals to be presented for residents at the same. The first local detailed plan proposal and corresponding street plan proposals were presented in March 2022. The strategical plan proposal for Vantaa Light Rail was presented to residents in June 2022.
Opinions and reminders
Plans can be influenced by providing opinions and reminders depending on the planning stage of the plan in question. Residents can provide opinions on draft street plans for 14 days they are presented. You can leave your opinion via online survey or e-mail email@example.com
Material for local detailed plan proposals is presented for 21 days. Residents can provide opinions to registry office firstname.lastname@example.org during presentation time.
Residents can provide reminders on local detailed plan proposals and the corresponding street plan proposals for 30 days (minimum). Reminders must be provided to registry office email@example.com by 3 p.m. on the last day of the presentation.
The strategical plan proposal for Vantaa Light Rail is presented to residents for 30 days possibly in June 2022. Residents can provide reminders to registry office firstname.lastname@example.org during presentation time.
Landowners will be informed separately of the progress of the plans.
Information events and surveys
In addition to opinions and reminders, workshops and information events are held for residents. Information events, either online or hybrid, are organized to inform residents on the progress of the planning at least once during spring and autumn.
In addition to the events, there has been also workshops and online surveys for collecting views and ideas related to planning e.g. the streets and art along the light rail route. Furthermore, the rail light rail team visits different events, fairs and parties concerned.
