This paper points at the role of the planning document defining spatial policy in creating the sustainable development of a commune. The study serves to analyse whether the planning of spatial development of communes under environmental protection in the vicinity of the city of Wrocław is performed in accord with the functioning of the natural environment and fosters the sustainable development of villages. The evaluation was performed based on a set of approved indicators for evaluating sustainable development with regard to environmental order, as well as approved indicators for the sustainable development of the spatial policy on a local level.
