Using Retailing-Based Gravity Accessibility for Urban Retailing Planning Diagnosis in Terms of Goods Movements

Abstract

This chapter proposes an exploratory gravity accessibility analysis applied to urban goods transport in Lyon, France to support public decision choices in terms of retailing land use. The proposed indicator is shopping-trip oriented but with a viewpoint of urban goods transport: it considers freight generation (i.e., commodity quantities) at destination and travel issues between household locations and retailing areas for shopping purposes. First, an overview of accessibility used in both urban personal and goods mobility is made, and the proposed analysis motivated. Second, the main methodological elements are presented, focusing on the modelling issues mobilized for indicator construction. Third, the analysis is applied to the current situation for the urban area of Lyon. Results are presented and discussed. Finally, recommendations to public authorities for land-use and mobility (both for people and goods) policy assessment are proposed.
