Following socio-economic changes in Central Eastern Europe, the areas located near water bodies have changed, on a massive scale, their character from that of agricultural areas to that of areas developed with holiday buildings. These changes occur very rapidly, with no opportunity for municipalities to prepare comprehensive area development plans. Cadastral divisions performed to satisfy the new owners’ needs do not ensure the sustainable development spaces that are particularly attractive in terms of recreation, tourism and nature. This publication indicates examples of such divisions and thus shows the resulting restrictions on the access to lakeside areas as well as changes to the natural environment introduced in order to satisfy private needs. The collected statistical data from the cadastre confirmed non-harmonized transformations in land use. The lack of a guaranteed public space in the areas located near water bodies also becomes the cause of a conflict between water tourists and the new owners of the land. The indicated examples show that changes in cadastral structures do not guarantee the sustainable development of particularly attractive areas and may, in the future, limit the development of recreation and active tourism in these areas.

Keywords: spatial conflicts, active tourism, water tourism
