Example text

Compared with other countries in Western Europe, however, urbanisation can be characterised as weak, and was relatively late in coming. It was only after the Second World War that urbanisation picked up speed in Norway. The very term ‘urbanisation’ was little used prior to the 1960s (Rasmussen, 1995), and there is still a strong rural tradition of negativism to urbanisation as a result (Rasmussen, 1988). Large sections of Norway’s urban population still have close ties with a rural background in which they were born and grew up.

38 Lars Gulbrandsen The population census from 1960 contained 217,318 farmhouses, representing 20 per cent of the country’s housing stock. 5 per cent. This corresponds to about 170,000 dwellings. Well over half of the registered farm properties, primarily the smallest, are not in active use but have become pure housing or recreational properties (Sevatdal, 2002). If we assume that the bulk of farm properties are situated in sparsely populated areas, we can, based on the sample surveys, calculate that well over half of the dwellings in sparsely populated areas neither are, nor have been, farmhouses.

Plans are also afoot to prevent homes being bought up for holiday use. Folkesdotter is far more reticent about this latter move, claiming such restrictions would be difficult to enforce and might run contrary to European law. She points out that Denmark’s longstanding measures to curtail holiday home growth (and foreign property acquisition) may soon be judged illegal by the European Union. So beyond such legislative tools, regional co-operation is seen as an important means of positively managing social change, though it appears that municipal inconsistency in the application of management tools (including development control) may well leave some regional strategies in disarray.
