We want to develop Gåsebäck's industrial area into a district with a focus on operations, culture, service and housing.
Gåsebäck's industrial area will be gradually transformed from an industrial area to a mixed district. The goal is an attractive district with mixed buildings and character. Gåsebäck must also contain meeting places in the form of green areas and public environments. It is important that the existing identity and local culture are strengthened. Existing buildings that are of cultural-historical value and the variation in the area must be preserved in combination with new construction and addition over time. All in all, it gives an area with a special character in a mix of old and new.
Vision work has been carried out since the 1990s and it has become clear that several of the difficulties for development at Gåsebäck do not lie within what the city has at its disposal with the usual planning methods.
The challenge is to develop the transformation process and that a large participation from citizens and other actors leads to democratically anchored and long-term sustainable results as well as a sense of trust and confidence. It is through temporary projects that we create a long-term result. The method must be stimulating and supportive for all actors at Gåsebäck.
In the curious and exploratory way of working that is used, the ambition is to, during the work, test, study and document alternative methods for urban transformation, and to dare to be self-critical. The overall processes and methods examine and ask questions about how urban transformation can take place and what added value and results it can provide in the urban environment. To learn from this work, we have enlisted the help of external consultants who have helped us with an evaluation.
The method used to achieve the goal is co-creation, which means supporting and stimulating active and committed people in the area and in the city. The transformation will encourage dialogue and co-creation in symbiosis between the city, enthusiasts, operators, property owners, residents, associations and other actors. Co-creation must also take place within the city's operations and companies, as well as with the business community.
