Urban And Rural Population Change Urban And Rural Population Change Presentation Transcript

  • Urban and Rural Population Change
    AS Geography
  • Urban Change
    How do we think a town develops?
    Towns for develop for several reasons
    However most can be categorised into several ways.
    Defence
    Crossing point
    Good land
    Natural Resources
    Trade
    Route intersection
  • Rural Change
    Changes are occurring at all levels of development
    Problems with ageing pop’ns in MEDC’s
    Problems with young pop’ns in LEDC’s
    Some areas are losing and some are gaining pop’n
    Migration, natural change, development all create different types of change
  • Remote Rural Pop’n in the UK
    Remote rural pop’ns are declining in the UK whereas accessible rural urban fringe areas are expanding
    Consequences of Decline:
    In groups try and think of Consequences of Decline
  • Consequences of Decline
    Many of the people left behind are elderly and of limited means
    Houses bought as second homes, creating a ghost town effect for much of year
    Deprivation sets in – those left can not move away and lead restricted lives
    Sense of Isolation becomes pervasive
  • Consequences of Expansion
    What do you feel will be the Consequences of Expansion
    Creation of several small new housing estates, often that locals can not afford
    Many families have 2 or more cars so there is an increase in congestion, particularly at peak times
    Villages become dormitory with little life during the day
    Conflicts occur between locals and newcomers
    Maintaining rural identity is difficult in an increasingly urban environment
  • How does all this affect Services
    On the handout you have been given try to fill in what you think are the missing parts
  • Case Studies of Rural Settlements
    Two studies
    One in decline – Chapel Stile – The Lake District
    One in expansion – Great Budworth - Cheshire
