A municipal housing company like Älmhultsbostäder has to both invest in new dwellings and decide to sell existing dwellings. When we build new dwellings, more people are given the chance to move into a dwelling in Älmhult. When we sell a dwelling, it remains in Älmhult. There is a new property owner. New homes in Kvarnen quarter Most of the people on our housing waiting list want a small dwelling, preferably in the centre of Älmhult. In Kvarnen quarter, between Hantverksgatan and Eriksgatan, we
As usual, the conversation covers a number of subjects. Roland is bubbling with energy. There is much to talk about in terms of what has happened and is happening in Älmhult Municipality.

As you can read in the article about municipal director Roland Eiman, Älmhult is growing. New housing is needed.
