Temporary building permit to be taken to the Supreme Administrative Court

Helsinki Administrative Court has decided not to process the complaint of the Friends of Malmi Airport against the truck drivers’ training area planned to be built in the airport area. If implemented, the project would destroy a significant portion of the airport’s meadows. The planned activity goes against the zoning plan and has not been originally presented as a “substitutive activity”.

It is therefore unclear on what grounds the eviction of the Malmi Airfield Association has been carried out, as the City of Helsinki has no real critical need for the airport area.

The original complaint can be found here (in Finnish) and the decision of Helsinki Administrative Court is below. The decision was made in record time, just a couple of weeks.

The Friends of Malmi Airport will prepare an appeal permit application to the Supreme Administrative Court and send it within the deadline before the end of 2021.
