Some of the technical aspects are described in the development of a model designed for the analysis of a particular planning problem. The simple residential location model relating homes and workplaces in detailed; data availability and calibration are described and the analysis of zonal attractiveness is set forth. The details are given of modelling housing supply, and of the use of the population model in forecasting. The plan area model is discussed and conclusions derived from the model development described here are presented. It is noted that a hierachical linkage between regional and subregional planning is essential since the significant interactions between policy decisions taken at the 2 levels must be examined simultaneously. At the regional scale, the interaction between homes and workplaces and the likely effect of changing housing, transport and conservation policies on location must be described. Conclusions are also listed which relate to difficulties in the use of the total stock model, budgets and implementation powers of agencies, as well as several other aspects.
