In the highly urbanized and densely populated western part of The Netherlands, called Randstad, the space is scarce and therefore the landscape is under the constant pressure. The changes in the landscapeare often the result of decisions brought up by the actors involved in planning in different time periods and different levels of spatial scales. Currently used procedures in the spatial planning practice in The Netherlands are long lasting and inefficient, based on the old fashioned unicentric model of decision making. The changes in modern "informational" society reflect in growing need for other models than those of hierarchical type. This research deals with urban designs and corresponding decisions which caused the transformation of the original landscape into the urban environment. The aim is to develop a DSS for common citizens inpluricentric society, which will help them to define their individual opinion and choice preferences before they take part in collective negotiations with other decision makers. The DSS will be developed and tested on the case-study area of the Masterplan for South Axes in Amsterdam
