Sale of Agricultural Land in the Coastal Strip on the Example of Selected Municipalities of the Kamieński and Gryfice Districts
Purpose: The aim of the article was to present changes in the amount of agricultural land sold in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship. Moreover, it was presented at what the prices of agricultural land were in particular years. The article presents prices and sales volumes of agricultural land in selected municipalities of the coastal belt. The following coastal municipalities of Kamień Pomorski and Gryfice districts were selected for the study: Dziwnów, Rewal, Trzebiatów, Kamień Pomorski and Wolin. Approach/Methodology/Design: The publication uses data from the Registers of Prices and Values of Real Estate maintained by individual county offices. Additionally, the number of transactions as well as the unit price of agricultural land were obtained from reports of the Agricultural Property Agency as well as the National Agricultural Support Centre. Findings: On the basis of the research carried out, it should be noted that the mere fact that agricultural land is located in the coastal zone means that it is usually valued higher, with the specific location, i.e. the distance from the sea, being very important. At the same time, the possibility of using them for other purposes, such as recreation or development, is important. Practical implications: The prepared publication should be regarded as an introduction to further in-depth research on the sale of agricultural land in Poland.
