    • What is a settlement? Definitions
      • A settlement is a place where people live. Settlements come in lots of different sizes. A settlement may be as small as a single house in a remote area or as a large as a mega city (a city with over 10 million residents).
      • A settlement may be permanent or temporary . An example of a temporary settlement would be a refugee camp . However, a temporary settlement may become permanent over time. This has happened to many refugee camps that have been built in conflict zones.
      • The reasons why a settlement developed or was built can be thought of as its function . For example, the settlement of Southampton is a port.
    • Origins – why they are there!

    • Land Use Models
    • Changes to Land Use
      • In many MEDCs people are moving out of urban areas and relocating on the edge of towns:  
      • The area where the countryside meets the city is called the rural-urban fringe . Housing developments in these areas are often called suburbs .
      • Environmentalists and environmental groups are concerned that as more and more people move to the rural-urban fringe, urban areas will spread into the countryside. This is called urban sprawl .
      • In the UK, green belts are used to protect areas of countryside from urban sprawl. A green belt is an area of green land around a large city where development is restricted.
      • Some people are moving out of the city altogether and relocating in rural areas. The movement of people from urban areas to the countryside is called counter-urbanisation .
      • As well as the movement of people out of urban areas, businesses and services have also moved
