The government has decided on a bill for an increased differentiation of beach protection. It will be easier to build close to the beach in sparsely populated and rural areas and in small urban areas, at the same time as beach protection is tightened in areas with high building pressure. The local influence must also increase.
- It will be easier to build close to the beach in sparsely populated and rural areas and in small urban areas, at the same time as we tighten beach protection in densely populated areas where many want to build, says Minister of Climate and Environment Annika Strandhäll.
The government is also appointing an inquiry to review the current exceptions of the areal industries from shore protection. The purpose of the inquiry is to ensure that the exemption takes sufficient account of the varying conditions that prevail for different entrepreneurs in the areal industries.
Proposed amendments to the bill will mainly enter into force on 1 July 2022. The inquiry into the area's industries' exemption from shore protection will be reported no later than 31 December 2023.
