City Development Department

The cultural environment is part of our collective resources, our environment in its broadest sense, which must be managed in a socially responsible manner. At the City Development Department the conservators of built environment and archaeologists work with this in several ways. We work with assessments, archaeological field-investigations and surveys, planning and building permit issues, research and knowledge building and advice.

In the city we are consulted on planning and construction issues. This mission has been assigned to us by the Cultural Committee of the City of Gothenburg. There are also various laws and policies that govern our work.

Our mission includes also to impart knowledge and research results to the public. We do this in lectures,  seminars, publications and reports, public archaeological excavations and in the museum's exhibitions and projects.
