The Rovaniemi City Council approved the local detailed plan for the Lampela area in January 2017, and it was ratified in spring of the same year.
The new local detailed plan changes the old industrial and warehouse area that was close to the town centre, into a modern, diverse area for retail and housing.
The multiple partner model was chosen for drawing up the plan, where all landowners and holders actively and regularly participated in devising the plan.
The City of Rovaniemi initiated the revision of the local detailed plan for the Lampela area in 2008. The plan for the Lampela area was initiated based on a motion put forward by entrepreneurs and property proprietors.
The further development of the area was resolved by the city council in 2012 with the approval of the town centre’s partial local master plan that was ratified in summer 2015.
