New perspectives on housing and urban planning emerge

A series of innovative studies from Flinders University researchers are shedding light on fresh approaches to housing development, urban planning, and sustainable living.

These studies apply advanced techniques like machine learning, remote sensing, and inclusive frameworks to tackle complex challenges.

In one study, spatial science expert Dr Ali Soltani utilised machine learning algorithms to analyse over 10,000 regional house sales in South Australia between 2010 and 2021.

By exploring relationships between sale prices and socioeconomic factors, the research uncovered valuable insights into housing price behaviour.

The study revealed a preference for coastal locations over remote hinterlands and a significant rise in prices for affordable rural houses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Notably, machine learning models outperformed traditional econometric models in predicting regional housing prices, offering higher accuracy and fit.

Dr Soltani said the new approach sheds light on the complex, non-linear dynamics of housing markets at a time when remote work and city housing prices are improving demand for residential development in South Australia and possibly other regional areas.

In another study, Flinders researchers employed remote sensing technology and computer mapping to accurately measure bushfire recovery in regional landscapes.

These tools could support future planning and conservation measures in Australia.

Highlighting the needs of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their carers, and service providers, a third study by Associate Professor Ruth Walker and colleagues used an inclusive framework for future housing planning.

“This pilot study highlights the potential to empower people living with disabilities by including them in all processes in future housing planning,” said Associate Professor Walker.

Associate Professor Martin Breed’s research group is building a body of work to identify frameworks that incorporate specific biodiversity metrics to improve relationships between human health and positive environmental exposures in cities.

“From the soil up, we are seeking to highlight under-represented linkages between human health and wellbeing and the environment in the urban living experience,” said Associate Professor Breed.

A fifth study by Dr Zoei Sutton and colleagues investigates the relative absence of animals in town planning and urban design, despite the direct benefits pets and wildlife offer humans for reconnecting with nature, exercise, and companionship.

“This study helps us to reimagine an alternative to the existing 30-year planning strategy and present an alternative vision for human-animal relations in Melbourne by 2050,” said Dr Sutton.

These diverse Flinders University studies present new perspectives on future town planning, housing markets, and sustainable urban living, considering factors like bushfire risk, disability, biodiversity, and the role of animals in residential settings.
