Abstract [en]

Sweden is nowadays a country of housing shortage and the latest changes of the Planning and Building Act are intended to simplify an increased house-building. The Swedish Parliament thus decided in July 2014 to allow a new type of house; the so called “attefall house”, named after the answerable minister Stefan Attefall. In most cases only an application to the municipality followed by a starting permit from the building committee is needed without involving the neighbours, but in some special cases an ordinary building permit is still needed. The political cause to ease restrictions was to make it easier for house-owners to build and to let rooms in times of housing shortage, especially in the metropolitan areas. The national association of Swedish house-owners thus calculated with 200 000 new possibilities of dwellings for rent. The “attefall house” is however intended for second home use as well as permanent living. According to a questionnaire by the Swedish Television, the number of applications related to independent complementary dwellings, is negligible (totally 19 applications) in the three greatest cities in Sweden; Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö during the first year of the reform. The main part of the 5150 approved applications are connected to guest-houses etc. The interest has been topmost in municipalities well-known for large numbers of second homes. The article discusses the outcome in these kinds of coastal areas.
