Social and economic development always takes place in certain space. Space as a living environment for humans, is a limited and non-renewable factor. Interdisciplinary approach to space is a necessity arising from the law (application of the principles of sustainable development and spatial order). The aim of presented study was to examine the development potential level of the selected municipalities located in the district of Krakow, which borders directly with the city. The set of indicators concerned four thematic areas: society, economy, environment and spatial development. Statistical data, related to 2015, have been downloaded from the Local Data Bank (LDB). Benchmarking and typology were used for the analysis. Using two methods made the research more reliable. Presented study can be a valuable instrument to support decisions taken by the administrative units during the preparations of local development plans, strategies and programs in municipalities.
