Johan Edstav, a Green Party MP in charge of planning sustainable neighbourhoods, said: “The sky is the limit, you could say in this area. The need is of course very large.
“There is no limitation in my mission to see how big these resorts can be.”
Following an investigation into Sweden’s potential for sustainable housing, Mr Edstav has suggested constructing new cities and resorts, which would each house around 50,000 people.
Speaking to newspaper Dagens Industri, Mr Eriksson said: “It provides opportunities for Sweden to show that it is possible to build in a way that’s long-term and sustainable.”
The proposal has received mixed results on Sweden’s biggest forum, Flashback.
User ‘JDAM’ wrote: “A new city in the north surrounded by a wall, where all immigrants can live with Sharia law, completely cut off from the rest of Sweden could be a good idea.”
Another user asked: “Swedish taxpayers are going to fund the artificial cities that don’t have even one per cent of self-sufficiency, and will be inhabited by imported Arabs?”, describing the idea as “fantasy and idiocy”.
