Polish rural areas are affected by the post\-1990 transformation. The development of non\-agricultural management and use is accompanied by the phenomena of spatial disintegration, disappearance of local landscape features along with increase of ecological and social risks. Hence, it is necessary to search for integrated methods and innovative tools to support and restore sustainability, coherence and diversity. Conclusions are based on a review of research. It has been pointed out that a development vision common to the local community determines shaping spatial order in a given territory. It is constructed by the means of mediation process. Its foundations were searched for in the approaches of rurality in the field of rural sociology and humanistic geography. Subsequently, the role of participation in spatial decision\-making and the role of landscape impact in shaping the image of the territory were shown. The gathered arguments led to the conclusion that a development vision may arise in the process of participatory landscape management."]
