Do I need a permit for my advertisement?
If you want to place an advertisement on a land area that is owned by the City of Turku, you will need a permit from the city.

Permanent advertisements on city-owned land also require building and siting permits. These spots are rented for 5–10 years depending on the contract. The rent depends on the size of the advertisement. Apply for a permit with a free-form application that includes the following information:
Enterprise parking is used in six different areas. The areas are in the City Centre, Port Arthur, Pohjola, University Hill, and next to Samppalinna and the University Hospital. The same area division applies also to residential parking.
Terms and conditions of enterprise parking:
City plan areas
It is not permitted to work on the streets and other public areas within the city plan without a permit from the city. In this case an appropriate permit for the work must be acquired (permits for fences, digs, and/or siting).
Permits for areas outside the city plan
If the activity in question falls outside the public right of access, a permit from the landowner is needed for work in an area (such as a forest or field).
The City of Turku has sites available and suitable for business premises. The sites are mainly located in the precincts of Ohikulkutie (Turku bypass), Tampereentie, and the airport. The sites can be either rented or bought. A building obligation will be put on the site. The locations and prices of sites that are ready to be signed away can be found through the Turku City Map Service.

All outdoor events and sales require permission from the landowner. If you wish to organize an event in a public area owned by the city, such as a park, street or market square, you must get permission from the city of Turku. Fill in the event announcement form below. The form is in Finnish/Swedish.
