The detailed plan that is now canceled applies to Skjutbanan 1, which is located in the part of the inner city that is part of the national interest for cultural environmental protection in Östersund.
The area in question was covered by the city’s second town plan from 1846, where the blocks were characterized by a special grid system. Each block was divided into six equal parts – plots. It is this older land division that the national interest aims to protect.
The County Administrative Board believes that if the detailed plan is implemented, it may mean that this land division is not preserved and that the national interest is thus not served.
Therefore, the county administrative board now revokes the municipal council’s decision of 20 June 2022 to adopt the detailed plan.
