So far, virtually all residential mobility studies restrict the analysis to the direct relationship between households’ location and a greenness measure of the surroundings. This does not include much information on the quality of the neighbourhood, nor on the trajectory of change. Yet, Belgian periurban areas are now victims of their success: more and more want to locate in similar places. This phenomenon is also under scientific scrutiny, mainly with iterative simulations leading to an equilibrium when no more household would like to come. The approach is mainly additive: once an area is built up, it is deemed to remain urban; once a household as moved in, it stays.
In this presentation, I want to explore a different modelling path. First, an early arrived household in a neighbourhood may decide to move again at a later stage, e.g. when the area is too crowded according to their standards. The accommodation can be taken over, so the demographics change but not necessarily the artificial surface on that location (the relocation process implies a new artificial surface, somewhere else, though). Hence, the simulated world should integrate this non-linear evolution. Second, ecosystem services can be an interesting substitute of a general measure of greenness since there are a growing number of indicators and measurement techniques. Household’s location choices are thus driven by a more complex set of preferences. Third, residential mobility is only one type of agents impacting on the land use, hence on a region’s ES provisions (in quantities and qualities). Therefore, one needs to consider other important land-use decision makers such as farmers, forest managers and policy makers. The spatial-temporal system needs to be taken as a whole. Aesop’s city mouse and country mouse are being replaced by new generations of highly complex, but colourful, mice.
