Abstract

A limited use area (LUA) is a legally designated area which is affected by the adjoining facility or other similar structure, e.g. water treatment plant, municipal landfill, communication route, power line/substation, airport. Different kinds of sources causing the limited use of the property have impact either on air quality, noise or generation of electromagnetic fields. According to the law, the permitted emission standards can be exceeded in a LUA. The owner of real property situated in such area may request the purchase of property, compensation for the reduction of the real property value caused by restrictions on use and limitations on expansion of such property, or a claim for the improvement of acoustic comfort. The paper presents the essence of designating limited use areas around airports, analysis of the existing legal framework on the LUA, and an overview of experiences and solutions adopted in selected Polish airports in this regard. The article presents information on how LUAs are designated and on the related prohibitions and restrictions. It also discusses the possible claims and approaches of particular airports towards various types of compensation. The aim of the article is to present opportunities for conducting the corporate social responsibility policy at airports as a result of introduction of limited use areas. It also attempts to assess the good as well as troublesome legal solutions from the point of view of management of Polish airports. When developing this paper, analyzes of the existing legal provisions on LUA designation, internal materials and documents provided by airports, as well as information available on the websites of examined entities were used. A valuable source was also information gathered in the course of in-depth interviews conducted with employees responsible for the management of processes related to the LUA.
