Port companies content about new planning

Companies in the port industry receive a better investment climate at the commercial ports. Today, the Danish parliament has adopted a new planning act, which allows business activities in port areas to be better protected from housing and urban development than before.

"Port administrations and port companies have many more tools to protect port activities in the future. We have been asking for this for many years, so it's a good day for the port industry and for our society," says Jakob Svane, secretary responsible in Danske Havnevirksomheder, industry association for the private companies in the ports.

Over the last decade there have been several controversial cases about urban development and closure of commercial ports in Denmark - for example in Fredericia, Holbćk and Svendborg. It can hopefully be avoided in the future. Danish port companies will now help their members to apply the many tools in the new planning act.

"The Planning Act forces the municipalities to enter into dialogue with the business community about planning. So now, there must be a dialogue on better protection of commercial ports. Good tools must be used, not remain unused," says Jakob Svane.

The Danish port industry directly employs more than 20,000 people, most of them in private companies in the ports.
