Urban information

Urban information includes building conditions (number of permitted floors, depth, threshold separation, etc.), types of permitted use (housing, residential, commercial, industrial, medical, etc.), possible incorporation into general or local systems (roads, parks, equipments, forest parks, etc.) and expropriation and land division systems to fully develop the planning. All these conditions are given by urban planning.



The Urban Planning Information Website is to start operating shortly, offering a single tool containing the information currently available via the Planning Search Tool, the Heritage Search Tool and the Cartographic Information Point PIC). The new portal replaces these three tools, which will no longer be available once the new site becomes operative.

Besides allowing information to be viewed, the new site means better access and improved browsing, with a mobile version also available. The ETRS 89 cartographic base has also been updated and land plots adapted to meet European standards, with planning laws currently in force being added.
