After a general plan for a park or a green area has been drawn up, the next stage will be building planning. Building planning is proceeding according to the completed general plan, but at a more detailed level. During this building planning stage, play equipment and the materials to be used are chosen, among other things, and plantings are specified.
General planning of green areas
General plans shall be drawn up alongside the local detailed plans, which cover not only green areas but also, for example, communications and rainwater management solutions. A general plan clarifies the green area reservations in the local detailed plans, their use, the level of building, care and maintenance, the necessary investments as well as the implementation, care and management responsibilities.
Traffic planning refers to general planning with the purpose of creating guidelines for planning traffic routes in the urban region and for collecting information about the development of traffic flows. Traffic planning is done simultaneously with the local detailed planning within the area.
