Spatial planning (the planned land use) is one of two different types of “Land use” spatial data theme. “Land use” is defined in the Annex III to INSPIRE directive. It should be implemented within member states legal regulations till 30th May 2019. In case of spatial planning, this implementation can be difficult in Poland, for there is quite little standardization for spatial planning documents as well as complicated structure of Polish spatial planning system. The structure of Polish spatial planning system is hierarchical and covers three administration levels - country, regional and local. The most important one is the local (commune) level. The local spatial plan is the most important planning document for human surrounding. It is created for establishing planned land designation and use. Moreover, it regulates possibility of exercising the ownership rights within its limits, by implementing various restrictions or allowances. The local spatial plan is created basing on the study for conditions and directions of commune spatial development (the study) that defines commune spatial policy. Although local spatial plans are the acts of local law, its preparation is not mandatory. If there is no local spatial plan for a specific area, some kind of substituting document enabling area development can be issued. It is called decision on conditions for terrain built-up and development. When issuing such a document the commune authorities decide on changes in the planned land use for individual area development. It does not have to correspond with the study. It seems that infrastructure enabling unitary transformation of Polish spatial planning documents (in the whole country) into formats required by INSPIRE should be practically created from the beginning. Subsequently, the spatial planning data within the local level could be included in the cadastral database. Additional possible benefit here is that information from spatial planning documents may be used for performing real estate management and administration. The purpose of the research is investigating the possibility of connecting cadastral databases (managed at the local level) with databases for spatial plans, for example such us proposed earlier by UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre. In addition, the authors suggest to include information on planned land use in such a database if different from the one included in local spatial plan.
