ABSTRACT
Virtually no urban standards regarding housing development currently exist in Poland. The last urban standard dates back to 1974, and is no longer valid. Housing development designed 50-80 years ago followed the rules of social housing. Isochrones were applied to determine pedestrian routes to nurseries and primary schools. Urban factors were also considered, such as: intensity of building development, green area per resident, density of population etc. No guidelines have been recently imposed on the design of housing development that would force investors to plan nurseries or primary schools in housing areas for 10-20 thousand inhabitants. It is important to keep the minimum setback distance, the minimum of biologically-active area, and to provide possibly high intensity of building development. This article compares urban indicators for modern housing, pre-war buildings, and recently designed buildings. This permits the comparison of the quality of life of the buildings’ inhabitants, and an attempt to determine the most important urban factors for the residential environment.

Keywords: database of topographic objects, urban indicators, intensity of building development, housing development
