Cooperation in land use, housing and transport
The 14 municipalities in the Helsinki region cooperate strategically in the fields of land use, housing and transport. For example, they have established a joint advisory board in these areas.
On 9 June 2016, the municipalities in the Helsinki region and the State of Finland signed the MAL agreement on land use, housing and transport for 2016–2019. The MAL agreement describes the common intent to coordinate land use, housing and transport by the state and the 14 municipalities in the Helsinki region. It is based on the shared regional land use plan, housing strategy and development plan concerning the transport system.
The new plan is being prepared
What will traffic and housing be like in Helsinki in the future? How can we make two million residents and a million jobs work together to promote optimal growth and the well-being of people? Plans for MAL 2019 are currently being prepared, and the new regional plan on land use, housing and transport is due for completion in 2019.
