Open space amenities and residential land use: An Australian perspective
01. Juni 2018
Publication date: June 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 75 Author(s): M. Jones, R.G. Reed In a competitive market the individuals will bid up house prices to a level reflecting the capitalised value of the benefits that property owners perceive they receive from the presence of amenities, however there have been relatively few recent studies into the relationship between house prices and active open space. This is an important area of research as active open space helps to address some of the high profile and emerging problems in society including lack of exercise, obesity and a...

Automating the land valuation process carried out in land consolidation schemes
01. Juni 2018
Publication date: June 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 75 Author(s): Demetris Demetriou Land consolidation is an effectual land management procedure aiming to sustainable development. A critical issue in land consolidation schemes is land valuation which is a type of mass appraisal that is generally carried out using an empirical process. As a result, the process is time consuming, costly and the outcomes are not adequately accurate, reliable and consistent. A solution to these problems is the employment of automated valuation models (AVMs). In this context, this paper presents...

Reducing damages from sulfoxaflor use through mitigation measures to increase the protection of pollinator species
01. Juni 2018
Publication date: June 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 75 Author(s): Terence J. Centner, Brady Brewer, Isaac Leal The demise of pollinator species due to the increased use of insecticides and other factors is leading to declines in crop yields. In regulating insecticides, governments may preclude usage if it poses an unreasonable risk to the environment taking into account the economic, social, and environmental costs and benefits of its use. To meet this requirement, the registration of an insecticide often includes mitigation measures to reduce the adverse effects of its...

01. Juni 2018
Publication date: June 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 75 Author(s): Cheonjae Lee, Walter Timo de Vries In the Korean (re-)unification discourse, limited attention is given to how the highly different systems of land tenure can be unified in a comprehensive land governance framework. Possible reasons include the uncertainty of (re-)unification itself, high sensitivity of the land issue as a territorial matter and limited access to North Korean data about land tenure. Moreover, there are insufficient theoretical foundations regarding the role and the significance of land tenure...
