Sundsvall bases plans on wide consensus

Sundsvall

Detailed description of the Good Practice

The city, with the support of its politicians, started a project aiming at reducing the emissions from energy production and industries by the year 2000. “The results were rather good. But by 2000 we still had one problem, traffic. Back then 72 percent of the trips were made by private cars.”

The final decision on the vision was made in consensus in the city council in 2007.

  • transport planning

Objectives of the Good Practice

The final decision on the vision was made in consensus in the city council in 2007.
The plan also included building houses closer to the city centre and supporting the use of public transport, walking and cycling. “We will proceed step by step; hopefully the situation is better by the year 2010”, Tarberg says, and adds this advice: “Rely on other stakeholders and institutions before solving problems”.

Participants of the Good Practice

By the time Sundsvall started its SUTP plan along with the BUSTRIP project, the city had already started creating a town vision with the support of the vice-mayor, other politicians, various municipal departments and stakeholders.
