Abstract

Increasingly the attention of planners is being directed towards the development of land use models that have a sound behavioural base. This paper therefore presents a number of choice processes and discusses their appropriateness for simulating the location decision. One of these models, the Elimination-by-Aspects model, provides a behaviourally acceptable mechanism for new residents to sift through the large number of alternatives and attributes which are present in residential location decisions. This model was therefore applied to the choice of where to live for a number of people in Melbourne. It was found that the model provided a good explanation of the choice.
