ABSTRACT
This article attempts to forecast the influence of local planning decisions on the natural environment and landscape of a chosen tourist destination. In Poland, placement of a new development takes place on the basis of a local plan or, in its absence, on decisions concerning location of the said development. The plan document plays a deciding role in the development of a place, shaping architecture, protecting the natural values of landscape and nature, and as a tool, for shaping the spatial order. Drafting the local plan is not enough to provide guarantees that the adopted solutions will minimize changes to the environment. It often happens under pressure from the society exerting favourable provisions enabling completion of a development.
