Land consolidation in Poland as a tool for the improvement of farming conditions in terms of rural development - case study

Katarzyna Sobolewska-Mikulska


. Improvement of farming conditions and increased profitability of farms in Poland are closely related to implementation of land consolidation works, which are performed insufficiently comparing to the demands. The paper aims to analyse the improvement of farming conditions resulting from land consolidation based on the selected research site – land consolidation object “Adrianki”. The study concerned economic, environmental-and-landscape and legal-and-social aspects of the land consolidation effects. Results of the research proved that the farming conditions in the analysed agricultural holdings were improved based on the values of shape expanse coefficient; it decreased comparing to its values before land consolidation. Environmental-and-landscape results remained neutral what means that environmental conditions were not improved, but, on the other hand, they were not worsened. However, satisfactory legal-and-social effects were obtained since the legal status of all real estates was settled and updated cadastral data was obtained. What refers to social effects, there can be indicated increased interest in land consolidation works within the areas neighbouring to the research site. The analysed results of land consolidation works stay in accordance with the Rural Development Programme and they allow to consider rural areas as places of work, living, rest and recreation.
