Good Practice Short Story
"Overall, well-planned investments in a small community together with external funding and good local co-operation means that Hästholmen today has a well-developed and well-functioning Harbour for recreational fishing and other recreational boat traffic.”
The company, operating Hästholmen harbour, is owned by the municipality of Ödeshög. Its board, elected by the municipality, includes several members of the Hästholmen village community and when it comes to decision making, a series of associations such as these of local commercial and recreational fishermen are closely involved. This participative model allows for well-planned investments that have made Hästholmen an active port all year round. A wide variety of activities and facilities have been established in collaboration with local interest groups, for instance a camping site, restaurant, recreational fishing club, a scuba diving club and crayfish cooking competitions. FLAG Vättern has supported several projects in Hästholmen harbour, including the establishment of a plan for the development of the port in consultation with interested parties; the construction of a building for cleaning of fish; and the restoration of traditional boat houses in the port.
