Problems of creating spatial order of building development in post-agricultural areas

Maciej Delnicki


An increase in the popularity of suburban areas as places of residence has triggered dynamic development of such areas in recent years. This resulted in mass designation of previously agricultural land for housing development. Suburban areas with typically agricultural land parcellation are not prepared for adopting building development structures of urban character without an interference into their parcellation structure. In a situation of sporadic application by communes of the procedure of land consolidation followed by secondary division for the purpose of preparing future investment land, the real estate economy becomes based on individual divisions. A lack of the right regulations in local development plans does not permit control of the progressing building development. As a result, urban sprawl occurs, and the resulting structures largely deviate from the rules of spatial order.
