Well before the mining will affect the current building and your property, you will be informed about when you will be affected by the urban transformation. We understand that you have a lot of questions. It is entirely natural to have questions about when you will be affected, where you will go and how the move will work, and we will answer them as well as we can. An urban transformation officer from LKAB will contact you and you will reach agreement about an initial meeting. At the first meeting, you will talk about possibilities, requirements and wishes for the new premises.
Offer – a choice for the future
Companies, organisations and authorities that need to move as a result of LKAB's continued mining will be compensated in several parts.
Businesses that lease premises will be offered new premises with a lease escalation of up to five years, provided the lease costs are higher.
In addition to this, LKAB is responsible for the relocation costs and the loss of profit associated with the move and during the start-up time. LKAB will replace the current premises with new premises with equivalent function. The premises will not be a copy of the old ones, but they will be comparable. If premises are available in the existing stock of property, these may also be offered.
If you own your property where the business operates, you are also covered by the compensation that applies to property owners, i.e. you will be compensated with a replacement building or money.
