Office of Urban Planning

The urban planning office coordinates and manages land use, transportation planning and the urban development of Trondheim.

Nedre ElvehavnThe office produces planning policies and local development plans, advises private developers and oversees and reviews the process of planning/zoning applications.

Trondheim’s municipal plan has five main strategies for the development of the city:

  • maintain a compact urban development pattern and stimulate urban regeneration
  • reduce transport dependency through location policy and zoning regulation
  • preserve and develop existing green spaces
  • expand areas for commercial use
  • establish planning policies which result in a more predictable planning process

The municipal plan is only available in Norwegian. 

Local zoning regulation and the municipal plan are also accessible through our map solution; please see the icon “kart” in the upper right corner of our website.

National planning policies and the Planning and Building Act are available in English from the Ministry of the Environment’s website.
