    • Land use in cities Land use zones.
    • Recap Qs On paper, sketch the diagram + label the 5 zones from memory. Outer Suburbs Inner Suburbs Inner City/ Twilight Zone Industrial Zone CBD
    • Recap Qs Which is the oldest part of the city? What does ‘CBD’ stand for? In which zone would you expect to find small terraced housing? Why are there not many detached houses with drives near the CBD? Which zone do you think Priory is in?

    • Task: How do you think land is used in Portsmouth? In pairs, try to draw a sketch of Portsmouth from memory showing the different zones.
    • Land-Use in Portsmouth CBD Twilight Zone Industrial Zone Inner Suburbs Outer Suburbs
    • What land uses can you identify? What zones could there be?
    • What land uses can you identify? What zones could there be?
    • Questions Why are there tall buildings in the CBD? Why do businesses want to set up their offices in the CBD? 3. Why do you think there are very few driveways in the area surrounding Priory? 4. Why do you think driveways become more common as you move away from the city centre? 5. What problems might arise as a result of an increase in the number of out-of-town shopping centres?
    • Homework Go for a walk around Portsmouth (ooooh, exciting!) Take a series of photos to demonstrate different land use that you find Try to take photos that prove which urban zones you see, (e.g. a street of terraced housing for inner city) You can use your phone or a camera for photos. Then print out as a collage / poster / map with annotations. Due:
    • Land-use zones Use the textbooks to find out about land-use zones Make a poster that describes the 5 zones: - CBD - Industrial zone - Inner City (Twilight Zone) - Inner Suburbs - Outer Suburbs
    • Urban land use: Zone 1 CBD = Central Business District The CBD is at the heart of a town or city and usually has great accessibility, large shopping and banking areas, and government buildings
    • Characteristics of a CBD Old Core - often narrow streets / historical core (e.g. Old Portsmouth) - Very Accessible - major rail and road routes (often find public transport stations meet here - e.g. railway stations / bus stations) Entertainment - restaurants, clubs, etc Historical buildings (e.g. museums, castles, etc.) Government buildings (e.g. councils) Many have covered shopping centres (e.g. Cascades) Traffic Restrictions e.g. pedestrian areas (like Commercial Rd) Land has very high value - due to lack of space and competition for land Many National Chain stores (attract larger numbers of customers + can afford the high land cost/rent - e.g. M&S; WHS; Topshop Little/ No Residential because so expensive, maybe some flats above shops Banks, building societies, Estate Agents – where they can receive more customers
    • Zone 2: Inner City What is the Inner City? The Inner City is the land-use zone around the city centre, it is also known as the twilight zone or zone of transition. When did the Inner City grow up? Inner city areas grew up in the 19th century as towns increased rapidly due to the Industrial Revolution. This led to the growth of factories and low-cost terraced housing around what is now the city centre.
    • Characteristics of the Inner City High density 19th Century housing and manufacturing. Housing is usually linear, back to back and terraced This area tends to be run down unless housing has been redeveloped Land values are lower than those in the CBD. However, they still remain high. Houses are cheaper to buy / rent Population density in the inner city is very high as houses have been squeezed in. crowded areas with little open space Front doors open straight on to the pavement No front or back gardens (just a small back yard) factories providing employment for residents Social Problems - high crime rates, above average concentrations of low-income citizens
    • How is land used around Priory School Annotate the key land-use features in the following photos taken from Priory’s roof – give as much detail and explanation as possible. Write a sentence explaining which zone you think Priory belongs to and why

Priory is surrounded by lots of …………………………… houses which tend not to have driveways. This is partly due to limited ……………………………. in this …………………………….. location. Additionally, inner city housing in Portsmouth, like that surrounding Priory, was originally built a long time ago to house ………………………………………………... At this time very few people owned ……………………….. and residents could walk to work. Therefore there was no need for houses to have driveways. As you move away from the inner city towards the ………………………. the number of driveways …………………………... This is because the suburbs grew in response to an increase in car ownership, meaning people could travel longer ………………………… to work and could therefore live further away. Hence, since the suburbs grew in response to increased car ownership, ………………… houses have driveways as you move ……………………………………… from the city centre. 5. An increase in the number of out-of-town shopping centres may lead to a ………………………. in the number of people travelling to the CBD, resulting in shops in the CBD …………………….. customers and therefore money. If shops are losing money they may reach a point where they can no longer afford to remain …………………, meaning that shops in the CBD may begin to close and therefore the CBD may become run-down and suffer ………………………………. – a process whereby a town or city falls into a state of disrepair, resulting in unemployment, abandonment of shops, etc. losing; money; suburbs; urban decay; further away; space; dockyard workers; accessible; cars; CBD; terraced; shoppers; expensive; more; open; inner city; distances; increases; decline;
