Local Detailed Plan
Local detailed planning is the most detailed and essentially the most important level of all land use plans. It directs land use and building according to the requirements set by local conditions, the townscape and the landscape, good building practices and other agreed objectives.
Local detailed plans define the future use of the area it covers: what will be conserved and what may be built, where and how. For example, it defines the location, size and purpose of buildings.
Local detailed plans are prepared by the municipality in question. Building in shore areas can be based on a detailed shore plan that may be prepared also by the land owner. The Land Use and Building Act lays down content requirements for local detailed plans.
