Spatial deconcentration of economic land use and quality of life in european metropolitan areas

Spatial deconcentration of economic land use and quality of life in european metropolitan areas

Objective

SELMA aims to develop a consistent and comprehensive approach and evaluation model for the analysis of spatial deconcentration of economic (or non-residential) land use and the way these processes affect urban quality of life. The ultimate goal is to design urban planning and management strategies to ensure the maintenance of quality of life. The evaluation will be based on three dimensions of quality of life: socio- economic, environmental and resource dimensions. This will include the development of a taxonomy of employment deconcentration, integration of quality of life concepts and measurements, and the development of a set of modules to assess land use scenarios. The consortium covers case studies from Northern, Eastern and Mediterranean countries representing a wide range of spatial configurations and quality of life outcomes: North Wing Randstad, Breda, Rome, Pescara, Madrid, Valladolid, Copenhagen, Aarhus, Bristol/South Gloucester, Southampton/Eastleigh, Tel Aviv, Ashkelon, Prague and Brno.
