Abstract [en]

This study concentrates on the usage of property rateable values in an analysis of the central parts of Umeå. The purpose of the study has been to localise certain spatial patterns in the rateable values and however the dispersion of levels of value can bee linked with the distance to the central point. The hypothetical presumptions has been suggesting that the central point most likely ought to be localised in the central part of the area. Based on William Alonso´s bid-rent curve, the analyse of Umeå should not indicate on a complete linear relation between value and distance from the central point, but the nearness to this point should influence on the pattern. The pattern should demonstrate higher values in the central and east parts due to a business district in the centre and a university-hospital area in the eastern parts. The result of the analyse is partly corresponding to the hypothesis. The rateable values show their highest levels in the central part of Umeå, where also the central point is localised. The assumption that the eastern part of the area should be higher assessed than the western part corresponds with a light overstatement. The type of usage of the property has proved to be of importance for the size of the value. It is though clear that the bid-rent relationship don’t act freely in a free market situation. The Swedish planning tradition forms a strong fundament of control and leadership acting in the benefit of everyone. This results in a complex relationship where the market and the community works side by side and both influence one another.
