How do we create attractive housing environments for families with children?

The large generation of young adults born in the late 80s and early 90s has now reached family-forming age.

Many in the group live in smaller apartments but are now looking for a home in a child-friendly area, often a villa or a terraced house. New production of more family-friendly homes has been small in Helsingborg and suitable homes in the existing stock are being released at a lower rate than they are in demand. Many then apply to nearby municipalities where prices are lower and the supply larger.

How can we meet the increased demand for villas and townhouses and at the same time manage with limited land resources? How can we plan for family-friendly housing that suits several different types of life situations and financial conditions? How can we create better conditions for relocation chains?
