The purpose of this Regulation is to clarify the national land policy in the 100-meter coastal belt. The aim is to safeguard public interests and prevent unfortunate construction along lakes, in accordance to the Planning and Building Act. The Regulation ensures that a stronger geographic differentiation is suggested for the key areas where pressure on land is high. These guidelines apply to the 100-meter belt along the waterfront, with the range set out in the Planning and Building Act (article 1-8).The Regulation’s geographical scope is to preserve natural resources, cultural heritage and recreational values. Guidelines for the utilization of land and natural resources are divided into four categories: areas for existing and planned buildings for residential and industrial purposes (1); agricultural, natural and recreational areas and all land outside the building areas and shorelines (2); shoreline defined as land and sea areas (3); all coastal waters (4). In these areas the emphasis lies on the long-term management of natural and cultural values, as the basis for agriculture and conservation.

Two centuries of Viking raids into Europe tapered off following the adoption of Christianity by King Olav TRYGGVASON in 994; conversion of the Norwegian kingdom occurred over the next several decades. In 1397, Norway was absorbed into a union with Denmark that lasted more than four centuries. In 1814, Norwegians resisted the cession of their country to Sweden and adopted a new constitution. Sweden then invaded Norway but agreed to let Norway keep its constitution in return for accepting the union under a Swedish king.
