The six processes at the urban level are:
The six models dealing with these processes or groups of processes are all run within each time period, as shown in Figure 2. All of these models interact, with various timelags between the different processes of change. Changes in accessibility and environment, due to the workings of the transport system, directly influence location/relocation choices. These choices influence the property market, which influences developers’ decisions, and hence transport has an indirect influence on the development process.

Simplified DELTA models can be developed by reducing the level of detail or by omitting certain processes. For example, we developed a very simple residential location model for the Borders Railway Reopening Study using only two components of DELTA - the accessibility calculations and the location sub-model - and a single category of households.
