There are no outlooks for land use changes but, given the current development conditions, one can assume that local conflicts associated with the expansion of the transport infrastructure, needed in order to increase the competitiveness of the country, will increase. Consequently, taking into account available demographic projections, one can expect that the process of concentrating populations, as well as economic activities, in the big cities, medium-sized cities and rural areas surrounding them, will continue. The projected decrease in the total population of Poland will occur at the expense of the rural and small urban populations.

In line with the trends occurring in the EU, the growth of seasonality in the development and use of the areas outside the zones directly affected by the big cities (possession of second homes) should be expected in Poland.
