About Porsön development plan
What is a development plan?
A development plan explains the content of the Vision Luleå 2050 programmes in relation to districts and villages. A development plan can deal with all kinds of community issues from integration to housing construction. However, development plans do not have to deal with all issues or the same issues. They should deal with the issues that are most important for the specific district or village.
Expected result of the development plan
The purpose of the development plan for Porsön is to set the direction for long-term development. The plan should provide guidance for decisions on how to use land and water areas and how to use, develop and preserve the built environment, natural environments and aquatic areas.
The development plan must contribute to:
- Greater equality between groups
- Increased well-being and pride
- Increase the attractiveness for business start-ups on Porsön
- Increase the active participation of residents in the community
The thoughts and ideas that emerge during the citizens' dialogue will be used as a basis for further work on drafting proposals for a development plan for Porsön. Politicians will process the material received and develop concrete objectives for the development of Porsön. The aim is also to somehow highlight the results of the citizens' dialogue in the draft development plan.
In 2017, work started on the initial study for Porsön development plan. The initial study aimed to describe the current situation on Porsön and to identify the area's strengths and development needs.
Due to a lack of resources, we have had to make tough prioritisations and since the Municipal Board decided on the purpose and results of the development plan, the work has been dormant. Work resumed in autumn 2020. At the moment, we are working intensely to update and supplement planning conditions for the drafting of the development plan and the associated environmental impact assessment and to conduct the citizens' dialogue. In addition to the citizens' dialogue, targeted dialogues with actors on Porsön are also planned.
In spring 2021, development plan proposals will be drafted and consulted in accordance with Chapter 3, Section 8 of the Planning and Building Act. The draft plan will then be adjusted and put up for review in autumn 2021. After the review, the City Council can decide on the adoption of the development plan.
