Several meetings were held with each stakeholder group. These are:
•industry,
•the Oskarshamn Harbour Company,
•inhabitants at Lotsgården,

Discussions were deep and concerned many different aspects of the harbour and its development. Some examples are:
•Cultural historic value of the Lotsgården area.
•Trail for pedestrians along the harbour.
•Noise from harbour and industrial activities in conflict with housing.
•Future need of large loading areas for goods.
•Roads and railway forming a barrier between the town centre and the harbour
•Need for new living areas in attractive surroundings.

All stakeholders were also invited to give written statements of their opinions. The statements are presented in a report and will be considered in the continued planning process.
