Abstract [en]

This study evaluates the Stockholm metropolitan region’s goal of becoming a sustainable polycentric region in order to meet the needs of a steadily growing population. By conducting interviews with regional planners, this study aims to shed light upon how polycentric development is affected by the design of the transportation network as well as what challenges planners face when planning for a polycentric region. The results from the interviews are then compared with an extensive literature study, covering both classic and contemporary regional planning theory. In addition, a GIS-analysis is conducted to measure urban intensities within the communities selected for polycentric development. The results show that Stockholm should pay more attention to those settlements located further away from the original city centre, thus making them more attractive for transit oriented development (TOD). 

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie är en utvärdering av Stockholmsregionens mål om flerkärnig utveckling för att möta regionens växande folkmängd. Genom intervjuer med regionala planerare ämnar denna studie ta reda på hur flerkärnig utveckling påverkas av trafiksystemets utformning samt vilka utmaningar regionala planerare ställs inför vid planering av en flerkärnig region. Intervjuresultaten jämförs därefter med såväl klassiska som moderna teorier om regional planering. Utöver detta genomförs en GIS-analys för att mäta urbana intensiteter inom de orter som valts ut för regionens flerkärniga utveckling. Resultatet visar att Stockholm borde fokusera på de orter belägna längst ifrån den ursprungliga stadskärnan för att göra dessa mer attraktiva för kollektivtrafiknära förtätning.
