  • Strategy for the Responsible Development (SRD)

Among goals in the coming years, SRD indicates a balanced development of the whole country from economic, social, environmental, and territorial perspective. One of strategic plans carrying out SRD is Packet for medium cities – aimed on equalising development chances of all areas, in particular those with the biggest social-economic problems.

Packet for medium cities concerns cities counting more than 20 thousand residents and cities counting above 15 thousand residents that are capitals of districts with the exclusion of Voivodeship cities – currently it is 255 cities in the whole Poland (including Giżycko). On special support can count 122 urban centres, which according to analysis done by Polish Academy of Sciences are the most endangered by the loss of social-economic functions.

Packet for medium cities is based on two pillars: on one hand it is a support in making public investments and on the other hand it is a creation of conditions for private investments.

In state operational programmes managed by Minister of Development were envisioned preferences for medium cities, i.e. by dedicated recruitments in selected areas.

The sum of funds in state operational programs in competitions dedicated for medium cities under the Packet, planned for the coming years, amounts to almost 2.5 billion PLN.
