Landscape-work permit

  • Permit or other obligation
  • Iisalmi
  • Public service

Earthwork altering the landscape, tree-felling or other similar measures may not be carried out without a permit in a local detailed plan or local master plan area.

Do the following

If there are trees on your plot that need to be cut down, contact the greenery manager primarily by telephone, and they will conduct a terrain survey if necessary.

If the measures require a landscape-work permit, fill in the application form for a landscape-work permit and add the necessary appendices.

You can hear the neighbours’ opinions yourself or the city can do it for you (subject to a fee).

You can fill in/save and send the application and the hearing form for your neighbours by email, or print and send them by post.

To whom and on what terms

No permit is required for work with only minor impacts.

If the entrepreneur has established itself in another country in the European Economic Area and temporarily offers services in Finland, the same permits are required as from entrepreneurs established in Finland.

Period of validity

The permit is valid for three (3) years.

Background information

The owner or holder of a land area must apply for a landscape work permit in order to carry out earth works, tree-felling or similar action altering the landscape in areas covered by a local detailed plan. A landscape work permit is also required in areas covered by a local master plan, if the plan so requires.

The decision on the application is taken by the authority designated for the task by the municipality. No landscape work permit is required to fell individual trees for the purpose of caring for plots. Neither is a landscape work permit required for actions that are related to an issued building permit or action permit.
