      2) Answer: Is the redevelopment of Gunwharf sustainable? Explain why.
      3) Copy & complete the table
    • Is the Gunwharf redevelopment sustainable?
      Yes, It is sustainable because:
      Mixed land use means that the space is used more often by different groups of people
      As Gunwharf is an outlet area it does not compete directly with the shops in Commercial Road
      Key worker housing and affordable housing have to be provided as part of the development (e.g. No1 Gunwharf is 23% social housing)
      Generating tourist income for the city
      Reusing a site and protecting listed and historic buildings
      Is not out of town so is still easily accessible
      But, it is Not sustainable where:
      Entertainment and restaurants have caused the decline in the Southsea Pier area, Odean cinema in North End, Port Solent

    • Half Term Homework: due 2nd March
      Mini-project. Find out about services in different settlements. Compare what kinds of services (and how many) you find in different sized settlements. E.g. in what size settlement would you expect to find more specialist shops? What sorts of services are available in villages compared to cities?
      Make a factfile / case study of a large retail centre (e.g. Trafford Centre, Bluewater, Lakeside, etc.). Include facts such as: range of shops / services, numbers of customers, how far people are prepared to travel (if you can find this).
