Abstract

The decline of economic significance of agriculture is especially evident in the areas close to urban centres. At the same time, agricultural land-use interests collide with other, increasingly expanding and diverse interests originating in urbanisation of life styles in these areas. This paper presents an approach for reconciliation of conflicting interests, describes it's implementation in a case study of land-use planning process for a typical Slovenian local community. Public interview was used to identify three different interest groups in Komenda. Methodology of cognitive maps allowed the identified interests for environment and nature protection to be located in space. Another interview was conducted among Komenda farmers providing information on their plans for future, which was used to develop corresponding models for diversified types of agriculture production. Again, these models were transformed in suitability maps considering spatial criteria, determined by respective technologies. Such models are relevant representation of spatial potentials and restrictions as well as society's diversified interests and can be a promising starting point for a process of resolving conflicts and reaching the best possible consensus on future of agriculture.
