In contemporary urban contexts, addressing challenges like urban sprawl, pollution, and heat islands is imperative. Understanding urban mechanisms and prioritizing proximity and sustainable mobility are crucial for meeting citizens' needs. This study presents a quantitative model with 21 composite indicators, aligning with the 15-minute city theory's dimensions (EDU, HSW, L&C, SUP), to measure resource accessibility. Focused on Valencia, the analysis of its 70 neighborhoods reveals significant disparities in indicators, mainly due to geographical distribution. Peripheries consistently score lower, while city centers and high-status neighborhoods demonstrate higher values. This underscores the importance of targeted interventions to promote equitable access to resources across urban areas.
