Abstract [en]

This study aimed to examine what role and how the agriculture will be affected in a periurban environment as by the comprehensive plan that the municipal has established for the Röbäck area. The study tried to value the importance and role for the agriculture today and in the future. The methods of this study were interviews with farmers, inhabitants and workers of Röbäck, businesses and a sports club based on two types of interviews one survey-based with fixed questions and one in-depth interview with farmers. The municipal comprehensive plan and accompanying environmental impact assessment along relevant literature and the statistical database from Jordbruksverket were used to extract and compile data. The results show that the fields in and surrounding Röbäck contained good agricultural values and the ability to maintain of self-sufficiency in Västerbottens county is low. In the interviews with farmers the fear of not being able to use the farmland as before as a result of complaints on dust, noises, smells and rules on spreading fertilizers and pesticides raised a concern. The interviews showed that people living in Röbäck liked the combination of being close to Umeå city centrum as well as living close to the nature and the open landscapes, but few saw the link between the agriculture in Röbäck and these. The report concludes that the issue is complex and depends on whose interest should go first. There were both positive and negative outcomes of the plan in all the three pillars of sustainability
