Örkelljunga - Happy living and favourable environment for business
There are many good reasons to move to the scenic north-western part of Skåne. In Örkelljunga, plains meet the forest areas in the undulating landscape at our new waterfront neighbourhoods. Low unemployment and a favourable environment for business establishments will ensure strong local economic development.
More than 9 500 people live in the municipality, average age is 42 years and age groups are evenly represented. Of the municipality's approximately 4 500 households, 50% live in urban areas like Örkelljunga, Skåne Fagerhult, Åsljunga and Eket. The tax rate is the third lowest in Sweden and amounts to 29.15%, of which 18.76% is local.
Housing costs are among the lowest in the country, according to House Owners' Association, and we are investing in the production of newly constructed areas with the goal to provide happy living.
