Districts of Sweden
Municipalities in Sweden are in some rare cases divided into smaller districts or urban districts, are sometimes assigned administrative boards responsible for certain areas of governance in their respective areas. These districts are not specified by national Swedish law, but rather are created by individual municipalities, thus the Swedish names of these districts vary from municipality to municipality, including kommundelar, stadsdelområden, primärområden, or stadsdelsnämndsområden; the degree of administrative autonomy of these districts varies but is very limited. The city council of Stockholm Municipality has divided the city into smaller subdivisions; the city uses the English term "district" to describe these subdivisions. The districts were first created in 1997 to facilitate the efficiency of local government in Stockholm; the number of districts was reduced from 24 to 18 the following year, reduced again to the current 14 in 2007. Since the establishment of these districts, certain administrative tasks, such as school administration were re-centralized.
Each district has its own district administration, led by a district council, responsible for certain areas of municipal governance within their district, including pre-school education, park maintenance, local economic initiatives, elderly services, financial counseling, refugee reception services. Individual district councils have no power over city planning or tax policy, both of which are retained by the central city council; the councilors that serve on these district councils are part-time politicians holding other employment. They are preferably residents of the district; the central city council itself is responsible for setting the budget and responsibilities of the district councils. The city council appoints the members of each district council, so the political makeup of the district council resembles that of the central city council, not that of the district; the member of the district council are not elected in any fashion by the residents of the district in question. Stockholm's 14 districts are sometimes divided into smaller parts for statistical purposes, however these smaller districts have no administrative function in the city's governance.
Stockholm has 14 districts as of the administrative changes made in 2007: Gothenburg Municipality is divided into subdivisions which it refers to as "districts" in English, though as with Stockholm's districts, they are referred to as boroughs in unofficial contexts. The Swedish term used by the city council is stadsdelsnämndsområden; these districts were created in 1990. Just like in Stockholm, these districts each have a local governing body which Gothenburg calls "district committees." These committees serve a nearly identical function to Stockholm's district councils, including recreation, local economic issues and social services, the lower levels of the education system, like Stockholm's councils, these committees are appointed by the centralized city council. Gothenburg is divided into each with a district committee; these 21 districts can be further divided into 94 subdivisions which exist only for statistical and organizational purposes, serve no administrative function. The 21 districts of Gothenburg and the premiärområden enclosed within each: Malmö Municipality is divided into five districts.
These districts each have a board or council called a stadsdelsfullmäktige, each consisting of eleven members, which are responsible for various local administrative tasks. In Malmö, the district councils are responsible for assisting members of the community in contacting their politicians or navigating their way through government agencies; these are the five districts of Malmö: Väster Innerstaden Norr Söder Öster Other smaller municipalities in Sweden use municipal subdivisions for official purposes, however these are not always administrative. For example, Strängnäs Municipality uses district councils which serve a purely advisory function and have no administrative power. Borås Municipality is divided into ten districts, each with a district council responsible for pre-school and primary school, recreational services, services for the elderly. Torshälla is a region inside Eskilstuna Municipality which has withheld a degree of autonomy since merging with Eskilstuna, including their own city council.
Other municipalities that use districts for advisory or administrative purposes include Huddinge, Kalmar, Köping, Södertälje, Umeå and Västerås. Government of Sweden Swedish municipal assemblies Politics of Sweden City of Stockholm City of Stockholm: About Stockholm
