Neighborhood planning guidelines

The neighborhood plan guidelines are an innovation in Icelandic planning matters and are included with all the neighborhood planning programs of the City. They are based on the policy making of the municipal plan of Reykjavík and are designed to guide the application of various authorizations detailed in the provisions of neighborhood plans.

These guidelines are explanatory documents with illustrations and must be followed when applying the provisions.

The guidelines are not linked to specific neighborhoods or portions of the provisions; they are universal for all neighborhoods of the city.
