There are plans for how you can build in Sweden.
There are plans for municipalities and regions, but there is no national planning for entire Sweden.
However, the State can affect the plans of municipalities and regions with national goals and interests.
Based on the Planning and Building Act, the county administrative boards should make sure that national targets are realised and that everyone considers the national interests which exist.
So the actions of county administrative boards can have a positive or negative impact on Sweden, including the health and safety of people, and the risk of accidents or floods.
