A review of land use scenario modelling tools

Hughes, M.ORCID: 0000-0002-9810-1891 and Heckbert, S. (2012) A review of land use scenario modelling tools. Report for the WA Department of Planning, Perth, Western Australia.



The Western Australian Department of Planning (DoP) identified the need for additional decision support capability regarding land use and infrastructure planning using current, leading scenario modelling software tools. The DoP has identified a broad range of scenario planning needs at the state, regional and local scale associated with social, economic and environmental concerns. This review of land-use scenario planning and modelling software conducted by Curtin University will assist the DoP with identification of appropriate planning software tools. Effective use of appropriate planning software can enhance stakeholder engagement and assist with justification of planning decisions through evidence based decision making.
