Abstract

The quality of residential areas receives undiminished attention. Especially, the differentiation of quality is increasingly seen as an additional value for quality. Consequently, local authorities have a need for instruments that give direction to differentiation of residential areas. For this reason researchers committed to the Real Estate Management Group developed a method for optiniisation of area performance and households demands. This method was developed for the city of Etten-Leur. The first part of the paper focuses on the need for residential differentiation and the demand for tools within the scope of urban management. Next, the used method will be described. This contains, among other things, the division of residential areas, quality measurement on the level of these areas and the identification of the demands of distinguished types of households. Specific attention will be given to the method used for the matching supply and demand. The third part of the paper will focus on the results of the pilot-study in Etten-Leur including a visualisation of these results using the GIS application Mapinfo. The results give insight in the (potential) fitness of residential areas for various types of household. In the case of misfit the results show the cause. Finally, possible uses of the method will be discussed: urban management, renewal of neighbourhoods and the choice of new residential areas.
