The social dimension of sustainability has received increased attention in recent years as its importance for sustainable development in urban environments has been recognized. In urban regions, where land available for development is limited, municipalities may find themselves planning for areas situated within their municipality border and jurisdiction but that might be in proximity of, or directly connected to, developed or developing areas within other municipalities. This brings to focus a question of achieving social sustainability in the affected areas combined. This thesis intends to investigate how municipalities refer to the social dimension of sustainability in their planning of areas that are connected at the municipality border through a content analysis of the case of the Swedish municipalities of Lund and Staffanstorp and their respective suggested new plans for the areas of Källby and Flackarp-Höjebromölla. The underlying theories concern aspects of urban social sustainability. The conclusions drawn from the studied materials are that the municipalities have differing approaches to themes regarding social sustainability such as the building of identity and stability, as well as outward connections between themselves and with the region.
