To accommodate rising demand, the housing supply still needs to increase quite a lot in Copenhagen and surrounding suburbs in the years to come – more than what is currently in the local municipal plans.
The municipalities in the region face significant regulatory barriers to increasing the future housing supply – especially municipal budget constraints on new required investments, as well as regulation on how and where to densify and develop new and existing urban areas. Better regional infrastructure could help by increasing the demand spill-overs from the city and outwards, while the municipal budget constraints could be eased through public-private-partnerships or public development companies.
On October 1, Senior Economist Christian Heebøll presented these and other results at a housing market summit, facilitating a discussion between the Danish Minister of Transport, Building, and Housing and the Mayors of all the 28 municipalities in the Capital Region of Denmark.
