Hur kan naturvärden och rekreativa intressen tas tillvara vid byggnationsprojekt? : Fallstudie Tyresö strand

by Östhem, Johanna

Abstract (Summary)
Over the past decade in Sweden, 97 % of total population growth has occurred within five kilometres of the coast, primarily round the urbanized regions. The municipality of Tyresö is a suburb of Stockholm and has, purchased land in a coastal region in Tyresö strand. Ekologigruppen ab was commissioned by the municipality to carry out an evaluation of the environmental and recreational values of the area. The evaluations are intended to form a basis for future planning and construction work. This essay is based on theories, principles/concepts/guidelines from the field of conservation-ecology and physical planning. The aim of the essay is to shed light on the consequenses that construction and development can entail for the environment and to make recommendations for future development on the basis on knowledge acquried. The recommendations will mainly focus on those areas which have been designated as being particularly valuable/sensitive. Such areas are primarily the oak-groves and other valuable deciduous trees as well as shallow water with soft bottom sea-beds. These environments can be protected and strengthened by appropriate planning which can help limit encroachment as well as promote efforts to preserve a coherent green-structure.The shallow sea-beds may be partly protected by relocating the areas boat club. Relocating the boat club would also enhance recreational values since it would provide the public with improved access to the water. Bridges along the shoreline would further enhance water-access and provide greater opportunities for walking.
