A special place
Jammerbugt Commune is a very special place between sea and fjord. A unique area of outstanding natural beauty consisting of soft dunes, steep cliffs, dense forests and open moor land.
Natural assets aside, the new commune has much more to offer. Jammerbugt Commune is situated close to well-established business areas and the "hub" of the region, Aalborg, with its wide range of attractions i.e. university. Together, these strengths create a sound structural basis within the commune for citizens, business, visitors and new arrivals alike.
The aim of Jammerbugt Commune is to develop even higher levels of service for both our citizens and business sector. The commune will be an active participant, and provide the energy in the development of new initiatives, as well as being a strong player in strengthening our part in urban development, business life and tourism. The commune supports decentralization and actively encourages dialogue and involvement of citizens' and users' groups in any local decision making processes.
In short, our vision can be summed up in the following :
- We see the commune as an entity.
- We continue to be an attractive place to live and to visit.
- We work for dynamic, innovative and future-proof business development.
- We value our nature, cultural life, leisure time and tourism for the benefit of all.
- We have established international co-operation with Municipality and Commune of Strzelce Krajeńskie from Poland, as well as with communes from Finland, Norway and Sweden, and shortly from Germany too.
It is with great pleasure, that we welcome you to Jammerbugt Commune.
