Abstract

Equitable access can be taken as an indicator of good social infrastructure planning. Due to the inevitable spatial separation between demand and supply, inequality in accessibility has an inherently spatial dimension. An innovative approach has been developed and tested in this study. The proposed approach is less computationally intensive and overcomes some of the disadvantages of conventional approaches. It is based on the average distance of residents to the nearest service / facility by small area geography. It will support rapid assessments of inequalities and ‘what-if’ analyses in a planning context.
