MAL 2023 – new land use, housing and transport planning cycle has begun in the Helsinki region

What is MAL 2023?

Strategic land use, housing and transport planning (MAL) in the Helsinki region provides guidelines for sustainable solutions in the long term and prioritizes key measures in the short term.

The MAL 2023 plan supplements and revises the previous MAL 2019 plan based on updated targets and changes in the operating environment.

The final result will be a plan set to be completed in 2023 that covers the location of land-use, housing production and the development of the regional transport system that includes all modes of transport.

Who participate in the MAL 2023 planning process?

Land use, housing and transport are planned by experts from the Helsinki region, the state and the Helsinki region municipalities.
