The aim of this article is to point to the possible interface between landscape-ecologicalplanning and programmes supported by the European Community. Priorities and measuresembraced by SAPARD were used in a landscape-ecological plan applied at the local level.Five methodological steps based on the LANDEP methodics, i.e. Landscape-Ecological (L-E)analysis, L-E synthesis, L-E interpretation, L-E evaluation and L-E proposals, were applied toprepare the Proposal for optimal utilization of the study area. Being a compulsory part of territorialplanning, the L-E plan is a way in which to include measures resulting from CommonAgricultural Policy (CAP) reform into landscape utilization proposals in Slovakia.
