Sammanfattning: To reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases by local efforts, physical planning plays an essential part. It can have a great impact on our greenhouse gas emissions, by deciding important things as transport and energy planning. This study aims to examine the role of municipal comprehensive planning in the work to reduce greenhouse gases. The study is based on a case study of Lund municipality, carried out as an analysis of the master plan of Lund municipality, and interviews with six municipal officers. The results show that one third of the goals set in the comprehensive plan concern reduced greenhouse gas emissions (3 out of 9), slightly more than a quarter of the strategies (13 out of 51), and slightly more than a fifth of the standpoints (59 out of 278). Furthermore, the interviews show that the goals set in the comprehensive plan work as pointers for further planning, and an independent environmental impact statement was made of the plan. Quite contrary to this, the plan also includes formulations about accessibility for cars in the plan, as well as a preservation of road reserves, several expansion areas, and plans for expansion in smaller villages and rural parts of the municipality, where more housing tends to lead to more transportation by car. All of these were political add-ons to the plan, concluding that to further prioritize reduced greenhouse gases in master plans, a political ambition to do so is needed.
