Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Demographics, Urban Management, Planning, grade: 2, Uppsala University, course: Politische Geographie und "Gesellschafts"-plannung, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This essay compares different preparatory land-use plans from Uppsala län and Stockholm län in Sweden concerning topics of their traffic planning. The reason for the selection of plans from these two regions is firstly the limited possibility to compare bigger numbers of plans in this short essay and secondly the spatial nearness of them. But what is the reason to compare the traffic planning anyway? The population development, the load of the road net, the changing usage of vehicles of all kind, the traffic safety, rising energy prices, economical and environmental questions and the purpose of municipalities and the state to offer their citizens a proper possibility of mobility are only a few reasons to perform a balanced, long-sighted and sustainable planning. The main emphasis of this essay is to check if different municipalities aspire after solutions for a decreasing car use, environmental friendly concepts and how they want to regulate their objectives. Of course is such a comparison not very easy to perform, because of the different size and preconditions of the municipalities and the age of their preparatory land-use plan. The essay will at first introduce into the problem, different planning tools and the preconditions in the region, and then it will continue with a short summary of the traffic planning in each chosen land-use plan and will after that compare some main issues within the plans followed by conclusion of the results.
