Skellefteå is growing

Skellefteå is growing. The cityscape is changing every day with new buildings that rise and etch fresh shapes in Skellefteå’s skyline. Businesses, private individuals, public utilities and the municipality are all helping to power the most significant construction boom Skellefteå has experienced in more than 20 years. This is all in keeping with our ambition to have 80,000 inhabitants by 2030. Behind every project are stories, ideas, plans, examples and the evidence of creative and determined power of action. Here you will find details about current construction projects. You will also find interesting articles and films about the ideas and the people behind the projects as our plans to use our communal energy to build the new Skellefteå. So look around the page. But make sure to return often if you want to stay up to date. Because Skellefteå does not stand still.


Skellefteå 2030

A forward-thinking and equal opportunity municipality, attractive to live and work in, with the goal of having 80,000 inhabitants by 2030.

For Skellefteå to meet the challenges of the future, we must grow. To do this we have developed Skellefteå 2030, a project to develop a strategy to grow our population and to communicate how Skellefteå is an attractive place to live and work. Read more about everything related to the 2030 strategy.

Community Development

Demand for housing and plots is high and construction activity in Skellefteå is more intense now than it has been for 20 years.

The municipality is working on several major plans to develop Skellefteå. Right now, extensive work is underway with an in-depth overview plan for the central city, in which a traffic system solution must first be developed. The in-depth overview plan is associated with other major projects such as traffic strategy, cultural centers, and travel hubs. This makes it extra important that we achieve sustainable social development. To achieve our vision, we will all need to collaborate to create the Skellefteå we want.
