Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to determine the application of weighting and ranking of related and relevant criteria or factors in order to optimise the application of land use and transportation integration goals and objectives on a local municipal (LM) sphere of government in South Africa. For each objective (in the integration of land use and transportation) the utility function will be defined which represents the relative importance of the objective. To integrate, compare and optimise these objective functions that have (in most cases) different scales or units it needs to be normalised or transformed. Weights will be allocated to each criteria or factor that will reflect the importance and thereby the utility of the objective that will be determined. The result of the above mentioned methodology is the creation of a user-friendly scorecard that can be used by local municipalities to audit land use and transportation integration.
