The large pre-1989 agricultural premises that were built in the communist period are still with us and considerably shape the face of our villages to the present times. Its new uses are particularly problematic, but some changes took place during the last three decades. That is why we tried to compare former uses with uses to the year of the EU accession, up to date uses and planned uses according to territorial zoning plans. Selected municipalities of the Vysočina Region were chosen as case study. 375 pre-1989 agricultural premises with an area of 709.8 hectares were identified. Spatial expansion of 36.2 ha by biogas stations or composting plants to 2019 was found. Agricultural use has lost 116.2 hectares by the year 2019, i.e.,16.4% of the original area - 49.6% of which are agricultural brownfields. Based on the analyses of territorial zoning plans, it was found that they are prepared “rigidly” and that no significant changes are planned in the future. No plan has been made to return agriculture to areas that lost agricultural use in the previous years. Also, agricultural brownfields will not be widely intended for farming activities.
