Abstract [en]

Suburbs sprang up round about many Swedish towns and cities in and around 1900. For obvious reasons, they were most numerous round about the City of Stockholm. This thesis sets out to map and discuss urban planning in the suburban Stockholm municipalities between 1900 and 1960. Urban planning development in the suburban municipalities differs to a great extent from that of the towns, cities and boroughs of Sweden. The reason for the difference is to a great extent to be found in the structure of urban planning legislation.

I have chosen to undertake two case studies, both in Huddinge. The first concerns urban planning in the rural townships of Huddinge at the beginning of the 20th century, and second the construction of rental housing undertaken by the municipality in central Huddinge during the late 1940s and the 1950s. Comparison with two reference municipalities, Täby and Sollentuna, shows Huddinge in many ways typifying developments in the suburban Stockholm municipalities, the main differences being that Huddinge had six rural townships – the largest number anywhere in Sweden – and in the late 1940s and the 1950s built multi-family housing under its own aegis.
