Formulating spatial policies for a health resort municipality

key words: Study of the conditions and directions of spatial management of a municipality, health resort, spatial policy

Summary:

A study of the conditions and directions of spatial management of a mu-nicipality is one of the most important planning documents prepared at a local level. As an instrument for creating the spatial policy it is the initial document to formulate the local law. It constitutes an act of guidance, defining the planning in-tentions of the municipal authorities, and therefore its findings must be unambigu-ous, legible and understandable.
The subject of this analysis is such study of Lądek Zdrój, a municipality in the province of Lower Silesia. The document turns out to contain much ambiguity. The authors use concepts that are incomprehensible, undefined and often mislead-ing. Provisions of the study are not clear enough to allow their transfer to local law. There is therefore a possibility that there might be no correlation between the analyzed study, and the future legal acts prepared at a lower level.
