Accordingly, the support for a decision-making at municipal land management level could be provided and the land use in better and more efficient way promoted. The aim of the research is to explore and discuss the results of the expert assessments on necessity and possibilities for evaluation of land use efficiency in the municipal territories of Latvia. The data analysis of expert assessments follows basically a quantitative methodology. Therefore, the sociological research method, the analysis and synthesis, the logical-constructive and graphical methods mainly are used for the research. The findings of the study show the existing approaches for gathering and administrating the information about necessary changes in a functional land-use zoning, as well as the experts’ view on the indicator sets and its relative significance to be applied for evaluation of land use efficiency and the evaluation process in a whole.
