Abstract [en]

Population increases and environmental degradation are challenges for urban sustainability. Planning support systems (PSS) are available to assist local authorities in developing strategies towards sustainability and resilience of urban areas, but are not always used in practice. We adapted an open-source PSS to the case of Stockholm County, Sweden, where there is a productive working relationship between researchers, city planners, and regional planners. We employed a collaborative approach in extending and updating the PSS and analyzed the outcomes, in order to both improve the PSS and to investigate the process of planner engagement in PSS development. The approach involved systematic interactions with local planning authorities and e.g., additional data processing,integrating scientific knowledge, policy and engagement by planners in the complex process of planning for sustainable urban development. This made the PSS more user-friendly for local planners, facilitating adoption by planning authorities through overcoming common quality and acceptance barriers to use of PSS in practice. Involving planners in PSS development thus increases (i) PSS quality, producing relevant and up-to-date outputs, and (ii) acceptance for PSS by regional planners. Further assessment is required to determine whether planners can operate the adapted PSS unaided.
