THE ANALYSIS OF SOCIO-SPATIAL AVAILABILITY OF GAS PIPELINE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR COMMUNES LOCATED IN THE IMPACT ZONE OF NATIONAL PARKS

This article is an attempt to typologically characterize 114 communes, which in their administrative borders contain national parks, in terms of their equipment and availability of gas network communes having national park in their administrative boarders. The analysis has been conducted with the use of two indicators, based on the statistical data of Central Statistical Office, available in LDB (Local Data Bank). Simultanoulsy, the assessment of socio-spatial availability has been based on the measures showing the given indicator in relation to the area or population number. The conducted analysis allowed to identify six types of communes that show the current situation in terms of gas network saturation, which constitutes one of the factors of sustainable development. Situation in terms of occurrence, as well as availability of gas pipelines in the studied communes must be considered as unfavorable. The largest group (55 of 114) is comprised are the communes, where there is no gas pipeline. Communes where the implemented gas pipeline infrastructure supports the population in a very good manner include only 10 of 114.
