The article presents selected issues of the problem of NIMBY-type conflicts. These are conflicts arising from the opposition of local communities to the location, in the vicinity of their place of residence, of investments perceived by them as a nuisance. A spatial picture of the occurrence of conflicts in Poland (excluding large and medium-sized cities) is presented, resulting from a search of press archives (regional and local press) conducted for the period January 2007 – March 2014.
