THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NATURAL URBAN SURROUNDINGS AND RESIDENTS’ WELL-BEING

Abstract: Access to green space contributes positively to human well-being. One option for inhabitants of urbanized areas is to visit green space within the city borders; another option is to travel beyond them. The former is in favor of ample city arrangements, the latter points in the direction of densely built accumulations. To reveal existing preferences, subjective ratings are contrasted with an objective counterpart: the difference between non-permanent habitable and built-up areas. Equilibrium between natural and urban space receives good ratings. Prevalence of built-up areas within communities is evaluated much worse compared with a bigger urban overhang in the adjacent surrounding.
