Plots and construction

The city-owned plots are located in the planned area of Kuopio. The city leases real property for permanent residence, entrepreneurship and temporary purposes.

General information on leasing a plot

The lease holder can buy the plot after 100 m2 or more is used of the permit, excluding scattered settlements of the city.

The lease period for permanent residence ranges from 50 to 60 years. For entrepreneurs, the period is generally shorter. Charges for lease plots vary, depending on their location. Charges for business plots also depend on the entrepreneur's branch.

Plots for detached houses, terraced houses, apartment houses and plots for business activities can be applied for informal application or by an application form, which is available on the internet or from the Customer Service in the Council Office.

To begin a construction project contact the building supervision authority, where permits are issued. Contact the Customer Service of the city about the processing times of applications.
