Abstract [en]

Urbanization has had a negative impact on rural development, and also places great demands on urban environments. The rural population is decreasing and has negative consequences for the public services, and cities may, among other things, has problems with keeping up with the housing demands. Sweden's rural policy is working with different initiatives and support for sustainable development in rural areas and how to increasing the population base. In 2009, a law change was implemented which increased the possibilities for Swedish municipalities to grant exemption from strandskyddet in areas with low population development in order to offer an attractive waterfront location for both living and businesses.

The purpose of this study was to map and analyse recent population development in the Umeå municipality's rural area between the years 2005-2016, focusing on new construction and the dispensers from strandskyddet. This is through a deductive quantitative method where statistics on the total population as well as localization of building permits for housing construction and given dispensers from strandskyddet in Umeå municipality have been studied and mapped.

The result from this studie shows that the population change in Umeå municipality's rural area has generally increased closest to Umeå city and decreased in the areas furthest from Umeå city. Building permits for new housing construction also take place mainly around Umeå city, and over time there has been some concentration towards the coast. There is no clear connection between the location of the areas with given dispensers from strandskyddet and the municipality's LIS areas. The areas with given dispensers from strandskyddet are mainly at the municipality's coast and the urban coastal area.
