It is a well-known fact that sustainable land use can contribute the formation and maintenance of balanced territorial development. At the same time in scientific publications too little attention is paid to the consideration of land-use planning as an indispensable elementary component of sustainable land use.

The aim of this article is to highlight is the importance of land-use planning for balanced territorial development within united territorial communities, mainly by analyzing existing land use and justification recommendations for optimizing land use on a balanced development basis.

Land-use planning involves the creation of documentation, including planning and mapping materials, which regulates of land use process within certain administrative unit. In Ukraine, such materials are first of all, a scheme (plan) of land-use certain territorial community, which is compiled on a scale of 1:10000 and contains the current state of land use within the territory of the village council (united territorial community), environmental measures and information on land-use planning for the appropriate perspective. So, the main direction of implementation the ideas of balanced territorial development for the certain administrative unit is the creating a plan for its land-use planning based on the principles of optimization landscape systems on the balanced development basis.

On this basis, let’s analyze the current state of land use the Nedogarkiv United Territorial Community and justify recommendations for optimizing land use on a balanced development basis.

On a whole, land-use planning is essential for the organization of balanced (sustainable) development of the territory, since the documental status of all created materials indicates that they are mandatory for all landowners and land users. The only disadvantage is the complete dependence of land-use planning on the legislative framework certain country, which complicates the offering of uniform methods of its application for several states or individual regions of the world.
