Type: Commissioned Consulting

Program: Participatory processes, communication, psychosocial health impact assessment
Location: Fredrikstad, Norway
Status: Delivered 2018

Team: Ida Lien, Kenneth Dahlgren

Rodeo architects, on behalf of Norsk Gjenvinning, has conducted a psychosocial health impact assessment of Borge Deponi in Fredrikstad. The investigation was concerned with whether, and how, the landfill affects local residents and other relevant actors, and whether the continued deposition of alun slate at Borge will lead to negative consequences of a psychosocial nature in the near or distant future.

Health impact assessment is a relatively new tool for Norwegian Municipalities, and close collaboration with Fredrikstad Municipality was thus required to ensure that the report answered key areas of concern. The assignment included broad stakeholder engagement, involving local population and various organisations and interest groups. Through the process, a number of interviews with politicians in Fredrikstad was also carried out to understand the political dimensions.

The investigation suggests that a lack of trust towards political, administrative, and organisational actors was a key driver of the deep concern expressed by local residents. To a large extent, this reflects a lack of information, openness and opportunity to impact the decision-making process – a process that resulted in the deposition of alun slate at Borge.
