Building in Lapland

Are you dreaming of a house or a summer cottage in Finnish Lapland? Do you wish to make it just so, to suit you? Such a large project should be planned well.

Our municipalities' technical departments or building supervision authority is the one to contact about the necessary permits, rules and regulations about building in Lapland. 


Building permits

Regardless of whether you are building a house, a summer cottage or a garage, you will need a building permit. The municipality's building authority grants you the permit. Learn more on building, legislation and permits. 

The local building supervision authority also grants the planning permits for minor constructions which you will need when making any façade changes, for example.
