Abstract: The process of urban shrinkage has numerous causes; the consequences of this phenomenon are also varied. The common ground, both for causes and consequences of the described phenomenon, is the broadly understood urban policy. Under this term the authors of the book understand the whole of the activities conducted at various levels of urban development management, with special emphasis on the role of municipal authorities. Undoubtedly, the role of the authorities is crucial, for they constitute the body appointed in democratic elections (Mayor, Council), as an expression of community support. It is assumed this style, and no other, of urban policy, emphasizing and solving specific problems is acceptable by the local community.
