Abstract [en]

Physical planning creates conditions for a more sustainable development. Transport is an important aspect in urban planning, because mobility is a central part of everyday life. But the traffic also leads to a lot of negative effects on our planet. Automobiles have for many years been a priority in planning. Many cities were characterized by car use, but later it was discovered to cause problems. New roads have led to increased traffic, it has results in an unsustainable development. Climate change and a population growth places higher demands on planning for the development to move in the right direction. The aim for this study is to examine how a municipality work with sustainable transportation. This has been displayed by studying the municipality of Umeå.

 

The municipality of Umeå has a goal to reach 200 000 inhabitants by the year 2050. It requires a long-term physical planning and a change in people's travel behavior. The study shows strategies for a more sustainable development. Some of the strategies is to build a compact and functional mixed city, with short geographical distances to create good conditions for sustainable travel.
