Abstract

The paper contains industrial and geographical study of the importance of industry in the area of Sisak and Petrinja (with the surrounding settlements) in the periods of planned economy and market restructuring. After the study of geographical assumptions of industrial development in Sisak and Petrinja (with the current hierarchy of local factors) as well as its history, this paper analyzes social and geographical indicators of settlement transformation under the influence of industry. The emphasis is on the social restructuring of the population, its regional mobility and the adjoining consequences, along with the functional and spatial transformation. The difference in the degree of transformation of particular settlements in the area of Sisak and Perinja is the result of polarized industrial development. Besides the industry in its totality, specific influences of certain industrial companies on the area of the town and its surroundings have been established. First and foremost the companies are observed as factors of daily mobility of workforce. However, until the beginning of 1990s they are also considered as factors of housing construction of two urban settlements (mostly Željezara Sisak-Steel factory Sisak and Rafinerija nafte-Oil refinery). Special attention is drawn to small and medium-sized industrial companies, especially their location demands and other problems, as well as their role in the development of the local community.
