This paper aims to describe how the redevelopment of Ystad harbour can increase the city’s overall attractivity, as well as create new economic growth opportunities. The related problems following the sea level rise is also discussed. The papers main question is, how the goal of increasing the city’s attractivity and economic growth opportunities can benefit from the redevelopment of the harbour area. Another question is the inclusion, and prioritising, of sustainability in this process. These questions were examined through research of planning documents, articles and official reports. This material was discussed and analysed with the help of theories of place marketing, creative capital and sustainability. The result shows that the harbour area has potential to increase the city’s attractivity by strengthening the city’s coastal identity. The marketing of the harbour, and its identity, is shown to be an important part of creating new economic growth. This is because of the harbours potential to attract the creative class and its accompanied creative capital. The research results also show that the prioritising between the different sustainability areas, in the redevelopment process, is uneven. A prioritization of the economic sustainability is identified. (Less)
