REVITALISATION AS A COMPONENT OF COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT OF RURAL AREAS, CASE STUDY OF THE MAZOWIECKIE VOIVODESHIP

Bielska, A.; Turek, A.
Abstract:
Revitalisation includes comprehensive and integrated activities in the social, technical, economic, environmental and spatial sphere. All revitalisation activities, however, must be subordinated to social goals, and infrastructural projects should support the improvement of the quality of life of residents and the socio-economic recovery of problem areas. Changes in rural areas aimed at improving spatial order and landscape aesthetics while preserving resources and forms of cultural heritage and local identity and activating residents are increasingly accentuated as one of the main directions of rural development. Strategic development planning is currently the standard of European rural renewal programs – the actual participation of the rural administrative unit begins with the developed strategy. Such activities also require significant financial support and involvement of local communities in the rural development process. The involvement of residents is a necessary condition for the success of renewal understood as a long-term, multi-faceted process of local development. The answer to the above problems can be municipal revitalisation programs that comprehensively cover those aspects. In Poland, rural revitalisation projects appeared in programs financed from EU funds in the 2014-2020 perspective. The formal and legal framework for using this instrument was, however, regulated in 2015, with passing of the Act on revitalisation. The objective of the article is to determine the possibility of using municipal revitalisation programs in the rural development process. A diagnosis of selected social, spatial, and environmental aspects, as well as analysis of local potentials of rural areas requiring renewal in the Mazowieckie voivodship was carried out, and recommendations for transformations of selected areas were defined.
