- housing potential in the new town next to Frederikssund
This paper gives a short introduction to the current housing market situation which is relevant for the presentation and discussion of the housing potential of a new town in the Copenhagen Metropolitan area, a main part of the cross border Øresund Region between Denmark and Sweden. Presently there is a huge demand for housing in this area and a lack of supply. The result is a dramatic housing price increase as well as rising commuting time in general. In the Greater Copenhagen region alone there is a call for another 90.000 dwellings in the next 12 years. The new town in the middle finger of the Fingerplan is one of the answers to this. The new town will be located at Store Rørbæk next to Frederikssund and the intention is to start construction work in 2010. The aim is to realise a new town with 14.000 people, 6.000 dwellings and 3-6.000 jobs. This paper presents possible future resident groups and their preferences as well as scenarios of the housing potential. The analysis of the preferences of future resident groups is based on information and data from four focus group interviews conducted in November 2005.
