New study: Future housing market and urban development in the Capital Region of Denmark

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.

Nordic Competition Compliance Survey

Copenhagen Economics invites in-house lawyers across all industries to participate in our Nordic competition compliance survey. The goal of the survey is to provide insight into how companies think about and work with compliance.

The survey covers all areas of competition compliance work and the results will let participants know what their peers think are:

  • The most effective training tools
  • The biggest challenges for compliance officers
  • The most important ingredients to ensure compliance

All responses are completely anonymous.

The survey takes approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.

We look forward to sharing the results of the survey with all participants, but the results will not be made public. We expect to have the results ready in the beginning of November.

Access the survey

Please contact Kirstine Rødsgaard Madsen or Holger Vandel Rasmussen if you have any questions or requests
