The regions in the Czech Republic divide the country in administrative metropolitan areas around county cities. One level below smaller sub-regions are established around municipalities with extended power - in the same way around dominant towns as county regions. Lowest level of regions is created by gradient areas around municipalities. Authors of this article assumes that the regional planning on appropriate scale can ensure balanced development of concerned area and prevent unwanted disparities. Most affected by the problems with sustainable growth are those locations hardly accessible from activity centres and also insufficiently or incorrectly integrated locations. Within this article the landscape in peripheral part of Pardubice region around the village Nové Hrady u Skutče is considered as a particular case study. The paper aims to analyze simple demographic data and figure out this area as appropriate study for further exploration of human and social capital in this edge landscape.
