Vantaa the Moomin World, with its indoor parks and parking spaces, intended for a culturally and historically valuable manor landscape, would significantly change the landscape of the area.
The Vantaa Urban Environment Board approved the proposed draft formula on Tuesday.
In the formula An experience center, an event center, an indoor park and about a hundred new apartments have been adapted to the surroundings of Backas Manor. The city also wants sled dog riding in the area, for example.
There is also experientialism in the planning of the parking area.
The new apartments and the experience center mean the construction of about more than 400 parking spaces in the old manor landscape. Since it would be “challenging” to implement a large parking garage in a value environment, it is now proposed to build parking on land in accordance with the shapes of the terrain and by landscaping the parking area into an orchard.
This would be accomplished by planting flowering trees between the parking spaces.
Plan has aroused much opposition among the residents. The project is opposed by an address calling for the preservation of the manor landscape with its field landscapes.
It is feared that the tourist crowds will destroy the culturally and historically valuable manor environment. Moomin figures are considered unsuitable for the historic mansion area.
