Search for: [Abstract = "Many Polish cities, especially large ones, have been experiencing gradual depopulation, partially resulting from emigration. Likewise, major part of former city dwellers are moving out nearby – toward neighbouring suburban rural municipalities. However, not every suburban municipality experiences residential function development to the same extent. It can be observed that among municipalities neighbouring the city there are units with high level of migration attractiveness ratio, where residential growth occurs dynamically, as well as those with less pronounced intensity. In this study, the author attempted to identify factors causing such differentiation and constituting barriers for residential function development in particular units. The aim has been achieved through careful analysis of selected cases and comparison of chosen municipalities. Research has shown that barriers result from, inter alia, unfavourable ownership structure and type of land use, insufficient development of communication and technical infrastructure, excessive distance between village\/town with local authorities and the city, improper local policy and complex legacy. It was also underlined that environmental barriers do not always have a significant impact on residential function development."]
