key words: land consolidation, land spatial structure

Summary:

The paper shows a preliminary trial evaluation of effect of consolidation works executed in Łętownia village, Jordanów commune, covering the area of 206 ha. Works concerning execution of land consolidation project started in 2006 ant took two years to complete. At the moment, all work associated with the project are complete.

The results show a significant improvement of spatial structure, in particular in reduction of the number of plots belonging to farms and thereby increase its average size. The relatively small improvement was observed in terms of reducing the distance between plots and habitats. A presence of land devoid contact with a public road was virtually eliminated, a phenomenon that affected most of the area in the period before merging.
