IMPLEMENTATION OF LAND CONSOLIDATION IN RURAL AREAS IN THE YEARS 2004-2013. QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS

key words: consolidation of agricultural land, agricultural land, reconstruction of rural areas

Summary:

Land consolidation projects are perfect tools for rural development. Land consolidation can be described as planned readjustment of land ownership patterns with the aim of creating larger and more rational land holdings. Other goals of land consolidation include infrastructural improvements and the implementation of developmental and environmental policies. Such activities have been implemented all over the world for many years. Owing to those experiences, we contribute to development of rural areas in an increasingly efficient way. Definition of innovation as well as features of the consolidation procedure and their individual character permit calling consolidation an agricultural innovation.
Consolidation of agricultural land should be realized in the areas which have flaws in surface structure but which are willing to carry out the activity in their areas. The fact that the procedure of consolidation of agricultural land in Poland (financed from the European Union funds and the Budget) is free of charge should be encouraging. Is it possible to explain the spatial distribution of implemented consolidations?
The study area covered Poland in general analyses, particularly the Lubelskie voivodship. The research employed the following methods: analysis and synthesis of the literature, field inventory, and research from the group of spatial-statistical approaches
