都市の居住環境と用途混在についての居住者の意識の分析 Residents' Perception of the Quality of Urban Living and Attitudes toward Mixed Land Use
This study examined people's perception of residential environment quality and attitudes toward mixed land use, through aquestionnaire survey administered to 9,423 residents in Tokyo and Kashiwa-city. The degree to which people thought theirresidential environments were protected correlated with their inclination to settle down in their current locations. It also correlatedwith residential satisfaction partly, pointing to the existence of different types of residential satisfaction, and with physicalenvironmental characteristics pertaining to land-use zoning, being higher in agricultural areas and lower in industrial areas.Residents who thought their environments were protected attributed it to the regulations of building heights and land uses; thosewho did not think so listed the lack of control over building density, setbacks, and land uses as reasons. The results suggest theimportance of taking perceptual and attitudinal, as well as physical-environmental, characteristics into consideration for effectiveresidential planning. Possibilities of allowing mixed land use for the planning of shrinking cities are discussed in terms ofresidential characteristics, human values, and physical environments.
