WOONMILIEUS VOOR LAGE-INKOMENSCATEGORIEEN: EEN VOORSTUDIE. 'WENSELIJKE' VERDELINGEN BEZIEN VANUIT DOELSTELLINGEN IN HET VOLKSHUISVESTINGS- EN VERVOER- EN VERKEERBELEID

This study aims at increasing the understanding of the complex connections between the policy fields of housing and transport. The study indicates which consequences policy decisions might have for different low-income groups in different settlement types in the Netherlands. The study starts with tracing the similarities and conflicts within and between the policy goals in both policy fields. The paper also indicates which policy alternatives in both fields can be integrated with each other. Social housing policy and market oriented housing policy are the two policy alternatives within the housing field. Locational policy and environmental policy are the two alternatives in the transport field. It is concluded that a market oriented housing policy fits better to the two policy alternatives in the transport field. This conclusion is based on simultaneous empirical analyses of living and travel behaviour of low-income groups. If politicians choose the market oriented housing policy, a combination with the locational policy in the transport field will be most succesful. Social housing policy finds its best partner in the environmental policy.
