Abstract

The quality of life and housing can be examined at two lev- els: the objective and the subjective level. This paper studies how residents evaluate the quality of housing in their neighbourhoods at the subjective level, regarding aesthetic aspects (neighbourhood attractiveness), ecological aspects (clean neighbourhood and environment) and citizen participation (planning and decision-making about the neighbourhood). The question- naire used in this part of survey contained questions pertaining to these neighbourhood characteristics. Research findings are generally positive regarding ecological and aesthetic aspects of neighbourhoods. People are quite satisfied with the visual appearance, maintenance and cleanliness of their neighbourhoods. Citizen participation, on the other hand, is rated as weak, almost non-existent. The research shows that citizens need to play a more powerful role in the organization of life in their neighbourhoods. By shaping the space in which they live, people contribute to the total quality of housing. (IN CROATIAN: Kvaliteta života, pa tako i kvaliteta stanovanja, istražuje se kroz dvije razine: objektivnu i subjektivnu. U ovom radu obrađena je subjektiv- na razina kvalitete stanovanja tj. rezultati o tome kako stanovnici osobno procjenjuju sljedeće elemente kvalitete stanovanja u svom susjedstvu: estet- ske elemente (izgled susjedstva), ekološke elemente (čistoća okoliša u su- sjedstvu) te građansku participaciju (sudjelovanje u planiranju i odlukama o susjedstvu). Anketni upitnik primijenjen je na ovaj dio istraživanja s pita- njima koja obuhvaćaju spomenute elemente. Rezultati istraživanja pokazali su se većim dijelom povoljnima za istraživana susjedstva prema ekološkim i estetskim aspektima. Primjećuje se i razmjerno veliko zadovoljstvo sta- novnika kako izgledom susjedstva tako i njegovom čistoćom i uređenošću, dok je građanska participacija ocijenjena poprilično slabom, gotovo nepo- stojećom. Budući da je sudjelovanje građana u oblikovanju i organizaciji svog životnog prostora bitan element kvalitete stanovanja, upozorava se na nužnost povećanja uloge građana u planiranju i organizaciji svog susjedstva.)
