Summary/Abstract: Representatives of science and practicians have for years been looking for ways to shape durable competitive advantages of the country's economy. Their goal has been to find out what actions taken under development policy lead to increasing the competitiveness of individual territories.The territorial and integrated approach to development is increasingly breaking through, which in practice has been reduced to functional areas, including urban functional areas, consisting of the central city and its surroundings, which is the area for the interactive spread of phenomena and processes occurring in the centre.Unfortunately, blockades within urban functional areas have a negative impact on building competitive advantages based on modern factors which rely on human and territorial capital.The publication discusses the cooperation of local government units in Łódź Voivodeship with various partners within urban functional areas, with particular regard to barriers which translate into joint actions for the development of cities and their surroundings.The assessment of the phenomena occurring in this area has made it possible to formulate recommendations for further intervention aimed at improving the cooperation.The results of the research undertaken show particular utility for social and economic development of various territories and can be a starting point for the formulation and implementation of solutions to build relationships between various entities participating in the development processes.
