    A methodology for land-use planning involving chemical sites has been developed for making decisions in local and regional administrations. The methodology structures the planning process in seven steps, where one can loop through the steps several times. Essential parts of the methodology are the specification of objectives and the development of alternatives where the objectives sets the frame in which the alternatives are assessed and compared. The list of objectives includes the following items: safety and accidents, public distortion and health, environmental impact, cultural and natural heritage, societal and company aspects. Focus is laid on the safety related items, and objectives and attributes related to safety are discussed in detail. An approach based on efficient frontier curves has been used for comparison of alternatives having landuse pattern as variable. In the development of the method case studies from Sweden and Denmark have been used, and essential topics and results from two Danish case studies are presented.
