I am in this essay to find out how to successfully combine new development with preservation of natural values, mainly large scale vegetation and ground formations.This is done by studies of three developments. The first development, Engeltofta backe, lies 7 km northeast of Gävle. The expectations of natural preservation were not fullfilled when this area, after the explotation, did not have any vegetation of value left. The second example, Östra Kvarnskogen in the community of Sollentuna, shows, as far as one can tell at the moment, a sucsessful combination of new development and preserved nature. The third example is a development in the community of Kullön. In this area the ambition of combining preservation and development was fullfilled. After studying vital documentation in each planning process, I made interviews with different actors in each of the three processes. I thereafter compared the different documents and answers from the interviewed persons to find out if there were any significant similarities or differences which could be of importence when natural values is to be preserved in new developments. My conclusion of this study is that it is of great importence to define key expressions often used in the process, such as natural values and preservation. Also the goal and ambition needs to be clearified so that all participants in the process knows what is to strive for. A positiv atmosphere simplifies the process even more and opens for new solutions. The way the work is organized, and in this organisation guarantee continuity in both statements and actors, is important to clearify at an early stage. Clear requirements in writing is an important aid when something as undefined and unquantitible as natural values is to be preserved. Also the choice of building technique, such as the foundation of a house and mass balance, as well as the exploitation number is of crucial importence to the final result.
