The Livable City
project is a joint project between Swedish national agencies and three medium-sized municipalities spanning a period of six years between 2005 and 2010. The aim of the project has been to develop processes focusing on the interplay between the planning of urban transport systems and built up environment. The focus has been on how different interests, requirements and needs are managed in a coordinated manner to achieve sustainable urban development. The project has resulted in some innovative solutions and the planning processes have been evaluated by a research team, which has given a basis for new planning tools and new roles for project leaders. Particular interest has been devoted to developing opportunities for coordinating work between the national, regional and local level.
