Suburbanisation is currently an essential characteristic of urban development in big European cities and their peripheral zones, both in the so called “Old Europe” and in most big cities in post-Communist countries. Suburbanisation is reflected mainly in changes within land use, intensification of development outside the city borders (especially along exit roads), and increased commuting. Land use structure is the outcome of decisions of bodies responsible for spatial management. It also depends on external factors (economic, technological, and social) and internal ones (e.g. current land development, attractiveness of land location within the city). The aim of the paper is to present changes in land use structure in Poland after the 90. with special focus on changes within suburban zone of Poznań city.
