ABSTRACT: The efficient and affordable transport systems are necessary for economic development and for the need to mitigate adverse externalities to health and the environment. Countries all over the world should support greater use of public and non-motorized transport and promote an integrated approach to policy making including policies and planning for land use, infrastructure, public transport systems and goods delivery networks, with a view to providing safe, affordable and efficient transportation, increasing energy efficiency and reducing pollution, congestion and also adverse health effects. The peripheral areas in the EU, especially those situated in regions with the undeveloped accessibility and low level of the economic development, have the opportunity to improve their availability, assuming the proper use of EU resources. The activity of the central, regional and local authorities will be of great importance during the implementation of the adopted development strategies and programmes for transport investments for the period 2007-2013. It is worth taking a closer look at one of the biggest current challenges that is the assurance of sustainable transport development & planning on the regional level. The goal of the paper is to present the research analysis, based on the available strategic documents and statistical data, on the present EU transport policy guidelines in the context of sustainable development concept and cohesion instruments, as well as transport planning and development in Poland with a special regard to one of its coastal regions Pomorskie voievodship.
