ABSTRACT

Between 2000 and 2010 housing development in Poland changed dramatically. Local development plans released large rural areas on the outskirts of most cities for single-family housing. As a result, there are many new low-density housing estates and very few high-density estates within city centres. The paper refers to a research method that has been developed to measure and compare various housing developments. The method can be used to show both density indicators and a general overview of different cases. The research presented in the article, based upon the developed method, was conducted in the Silesian Metropolitan Area on 41 case studies. The article summarizes the methodology and popularizes findings from the research.
