Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This paper is done as a case study of the planning process for Brotorget in Bollnäs and is based on interviews. Bollnäs sold their central square to a private company to build a shopping mall on the site. Then the financial crisis kicked in and no building started. In this paper I analyze this process based on three themes, first a review of how the planning process should be conducted according to the Planning and Building Act is done. The second theme is early negotiations between the municipality and the private actor which has become more common since the conditions for planning have changed. The third theme is actors and their roles in the process which the paper makes a general review of, including what power resources each actor possesses. These three themes then form the basis for the analysis of the case study.
First the steps in the process of Brotorget are analyzed. It states that the municipality did not do a program according to the Planning and Building Act. Then an analysis of the negotiations is done, which recognized that there were no early agreements between private actors and the municipality over the detailed plan but important decisions were taken early in the process within the municipality. Last an analysis is done about who the participating stakeholders were and what roles they played. It appears that during the planning process there have been only the municipality and its citizens, and the private actor entered the process later. The essay concludes with a few more reflections before an epilogue of the square end the paper.
