Building Permits and the Workplace

Magnus Rönn


This is a study of attempts by private companies to acquire building permits through the administrative court system*. It also examines the system by which land use plans and various authorities regulate the establishment of places of work as well as the design of buildings and the activities to be housed therein.

* Translator's note. Sweden has two parallel court systems: one for criminal and civil cases, and one for cases involving the administration of the country. Distputes involving governmental authorities, such as building permit cases, are settled in the administrative court system, which has three tiers: a county administrative board (länsstyrelsen), an administrative court of appeals (kammarrätten), and the supreme administrative court of appeals (regeringsrätten).
