Environmental values and their effects on residential satisfaction are of great importance in urban housing planning. Residential satisfaction about their residential place, inaddition to physical and mental health of the residents, is effective on quality of life, housing moving rate and prediction of housing demands.
Recently, high moving rate has intensified urban sprawl and forming residential clusters which can be considered as an important challenge in urban growth management.
Maali-Abad district is a new developed and renewed area at the north west part of Shiraz, which attracted a great number of population due to its main physical changes . Therefore, it is imperative to assess residential environment values in this part of the city and suggest some strategies to augment residential satisfaction. To this end, the data by using a standard questionnaire were collected. 430 participants completed the questionnaires. The residential satisfaction amount was determined by using a five-item Likert spectrum and classification of environmental specifications on the satisfaction rate of residents by using confirmatory factor analysis (CFA).
The reseach findings showed that most residents expressed their great satisfaction with their residential environment. Climate quality , existance of natural landscapes and gardens have important roles in this regard. However, in some parts of the area, especially in high-rise buildings and on the edge of Main Street, residents were unsatisfied with their environment.
