De verkenning van het leefstijlconcept in een subjectgerichte ruimtelijke planningstrategie

Ann Pisman UGent (2012)
abstract
This research aims to ascertain the usefulness of the catch-all concept of lifestyle as a way of mapping societal diversity and to develop new concepts for the spatial policy in Flanders. A lifestyle group is defined as a group of individuals characterized by strong similarities in terms of latent variables (personality aspects, attitudes, preferences, norms and values) or manifest variables (behavioral aspects and patterns of consumption) but not necessarily by identical demographic characteristics. Data were collected and clusteranalyses were executed to distinguish lifestyle clusters in Flanders. This research confirms that lifestyles can be useful as a way of mapping societal diversity, more specifically they can be used to describe different norms and values of the citizens (latent lifestyletypologies), different housing and behavioral patterns (manifest lifestyletypology) and a diversity in housing aspirations. Specific challenges for the planning of housing in Flanders were described. These challenges can inspire a new planning strategy, a balance between thinking from the government and the market approach, which facilitates some and changes other behaviors and preferences of the residents. At least three issues which do not conflict with the common cause can be facilitated by the spatial policy: more safety, more ecology and socially mixed neighborhoods. The dominant suburban housing aspirations can be addressed by intensifying the suburban characteristics of some (urban) housing environments but also need to be socialized, to be changed. Mainly the lifestyle analysis produced a diversified picture of the residents. This diversified picture needs a regional, territorial approach that emphasizes differences between transformation areas and green areas, transit areas and stable areas, quiet and busy neighborhoods, areas with fewer of more public space, areas for several lifestylegroups or areas for a more dominant lifestylegroup.
