Analysing housing preferences with decision plan nets

Han Floor, Ronald van Kempen

Jan 1, 1997
In this paper we evaluate a method of analysing housing preferences that is, in our opinion, a useful addition to more traditional approaches to housing research. This method, called the Decision Plan Net (DPN), reveals which characteristics of dwellings, residential environments and locations the respondents have weighed before making a definite choice. With a DPN we can determine which character...

A Fact is a Fact, but Perception is Reality: Stakeholders` Perceptions and Urban Policies in the Process of Urban Restructuring

Anita Kokx, Ronald van Kempen

Jan 1, 2010 in Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy
Distressed urban areas suffer, by definition, from a number of serious problems. It is often assumed that all relevant stakeholders agree about the character of these problems and the right policy solutions. Reality, however, is more complex. In this paper we investigate how local stakeholders and residents in a Dutch post-WWII neighborhood perceive urban problems and solutions. The findings show ...

Deepening crisis or homes for the future? Some reflections and implications for policies in large housing estates

Ronald van Kempen, Rob Rowlands et 2 al.

Jan 1, 2009
Although research has been carried out looking at large post-WWII housing estates since the 1970s, the zenith of activity has been since the second half of the 1990s. At least four reasons can be given for this attention. First, many of these areas have increasingly become the most unattractive places in cities. Second, up until this point, research in these areas has been limited and often narrow...

Theories of Neighbourhood Change and Decline: Their Significance for Post-WWII Large Housing Estates in European Cities

Ellen van Beckhoven et 3 al.

Jan 1, 2009
Only since the beginning of the 1990s has research attention for post-WWII large housing areas started systematically. On the one hand, this has to do with the fact that in the 1970s and 1980s the older (pre-war) neighbourhoods in European cities were subject to processes of regeneration and gentrification, which resulted in physical, social and economic improvement of many of these areas.
