Table 1. Planning praxis in Vilnius municipality 1998-2004.

During that period the master plan of the State territory and master plans of Panevė×ys, Druskininkai and Vilnius cities were prepared. There is no approved master plan of the county territory (General planning of Klaipėda county territory has mostly been developed; the concept of that plan has been approved).

Detailed plans of smaller parts of a territory have mainly been prepared. For example, in Vilnius detailed plans totalled 1421 were prepared from 1996 until 2005, 687 ha were planned in all. 889 plans out of those 1421 plans were assigned for a territory up to 1 ha. 715 plans embraced only one land plot (Diagram 1. and Scheme No. 3). The examples of different plan types are presented in Fact sheets.
