Compensation Measures and Cultural Heritage

Cover of final report. Illustration by Agneta Stening

During 2013 – 2015 Kulturlandskapet has been working on a research project on compensatory measures in terms of impact on the cultural environment. The research project aimed at investigating how to work compensation measures for intrusion into cultural environments and investigating opportunities for future applications and the need for supplementary regulations. The research project was structured through a series of case studies and workshops. The goal was to contribute to a rational community building process and clear rules. Project leader was Magnus Rönn, and Stig Swedberg and Benjamin Grahn Danielson also participated.
