Today many people have a dream of a home by the shoreline and the request for building plots by the shoreline is huge. The availability thou are limited. The limiting factor is the Swedish shoreline protection. Since the 1950ths the developments along the shorelines has been regulated. There have been a couple of changes of the protection during this time, from a selective system to a general and now finally a differentiated system. Studies made in the beginning of the 2000s showed that the protection in some ways was failing. There were many examples of developments occurring aimlessly and in violation of the shore protection. This led to a change of the shore protection July 1, 2009. The change should strengthen the shore protection and gave the municipalities greater possibilities to plan and control the housing along the shores. In addition to the larger amount of exemptions from the shore protection many of the more sparsely populated areas in Sweden has difficulties retaining their population. February 1, 2010, an addition to the previously changed rules took effect. This part makes it possible for the municipalities to select and mark areas along the shoreline as areas suitable for developments. Areas that could be attractive for houses among other things. The purpose of this Master’s Thesis is to describe how the shoreline protection in Sweden is today. The purpose is also to study if there is a difference in the municipal planning for LIS in different counties. This since it all ready has been shown that there are differences between counties in the application of the general parts of the shoreline protection. For the study both surveys and interviews were made with employees at the municipalities and the county administrations in Blekinge, Dalarna, Norrbotten and Västra Götaland County. The answers show differences between municipalities in different counties. For example a different number of steps have been taken by the municipalities in the planning process depending on which county it is belonging to. How the contact between the county administration and the municipality works is another example. The answers also show that rural municipalities differ from the others. The differences are probably due to the fact that the shoreline-protection is applied differently by the county administrations and municipalities. Even though most agree that the new shoreline protection is clearer, new gray areas have been raised. Different limitations to which shorelines that should be protected are one difference that affects the municipalities greatly. The differences that occur, shows that the new shoreline protection and its application aren’t as suited for the diversity that Sweden is as it should be. Above all it’s not suited for the rural municipalities who need an extra appealing factor.
