This paper presents a study on accessibility analysis for public housing development in Choa Chu Kang/Bukit Panjang area, Singapore, using geographical information systems (GIS) and multi-criteria analysis methods. GIS is used to measure accessibility to different types of facilities and amenities, while a multi-criteria method is employed to weight buyers’ preferences about the importance of each type of accessibility and to derive the overall attractiveness of each location for housing development in terms of these multiple types of accessibility. The results could be used to assist the housing planning and development authorities to prioritise sites where public housing should be developed in the study area.
