Halina Henzel, Katarzyna Śmietana, Elżbieta Zagórska, Tomasz Bolek - Classification of postindustrial areas in Silesia Province
The limitedness of property resources along with the need for protection of green areas create the necessity to undertake actions aiming at redevelopment of previously industrial sites. The determinant of carrying out these processes is obtaining full information on the possible degree of their pollution, namely the risks that should be considered while making a decision concerning their economic use. In order to create an inventory of postindustrial areas and suggest possible directions of their development a Provincial Base of Postindustrial Areas was created in Silesia Province within the framework of Regional Spatial Information System. The article presents the premises of the creation of the Base as well as its meaning for the needs of initiating the processes of postindustrial areas management, including revitalization projects with the participation of public and private entities.
Stanisław Belniak, Maciej W. Wierzchowski - Appraisal of economic rationale of the Treasury land sales to its lessees
The paper presents appraisal of the economic rationale for sales of the Treasury lands to their lessees. Appraisal has been conducted using the method of simulation, applied here to elaborate prognoses of effects consequences of actions undertaken by public administration bodies. The appraisal refers to particular case of resources’ allocation and the economic conditions of making the decision whether to keep the land under perpetual land lease contract or to sale it to its hitherto lessee. The conditions of such decision are the result of comparison between two simulated calculations:
• future value of annual cash flows from the perpetual land lease contract
• future value of capital gained from the sale contract of the same land
Simulation of calculations, presented in the paper, confirm the general rule that perpetual land lease under current legal conditions i.e. lease rents amounting to maximum 3% of land price, is not effective for the Treasury in economic terms. This conclusion has been the result of comparisons and simulations stating that future value of annual cash flows lasting for 40 years amounts to half of the future value of capital allocated in bank account for 40 years. This conclusion should be taken into account while assessing the requests for land sales issued by their lessees. Though, it should be added that institution of perpetual land leases has additional logistic rationale, enabling utilization of the Treasury land for strategic local investments such as housing, technical infrastructure, sports and recreational infrastructure, charity purposes.
