Governance of Land Use in Poland

The Case of Lodz

Lodz – the third largest city in Poland – is undertaking several major projects that have the potential to significantly reinvigorate the economy. Following the collapse of its traditional manufacturing industries in the late 1990s, Lodz went through a period of economic decline. A series of infrastructure investments and new developments are presently transforming its city centre and increasing its transportation connectivity. Coherent land-use practices across the areas where people live and work will be critical for the city and its surrounding communities to develop in a socially, environmentally, and fiscally sustainable way. This case study of the governance of land use in Lodz illustrates many promising practices and offers guidance on how to make the governance structure and planning system more coherent and robust both in Lodz, and in Poland more generally. This is the first in a series of five case studies on the governance of land use, which will culminate in a synthesis report to be published in 2017.

Hide / Show Abstract

This final chapter offers an assessment of how land is governed in ód and recommendations on how to improve upon the present system. It assesses the multi-level system of spatial planning and capacity at the local level. It analyses the various instruments for land-use planning and how they work together, and notes the instruments that are not presently being used, but potentially could be. Following this, some of the major issues facing the area are discussed, including how to more effectively co-ordinate with surrounding rural municipalities, engage citizens in participatory planning, and address the tandem challenges of depopulation and sprawl.
