Urbanisation

  1. 1. Urbanisation Lizzie
  2. 2. What is reurbanisation? <ul><li>“ The redevelopment taking place in the existing city and suburbs rather than on the fringe of the city” </li></ul><ul><li>People with high income and of a high status move back to the inner city area to live. </li></ul><ul><li>This is not common in many MEDC countries. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What are the causes of reurbanisation? <ul><li>Changes in the urban areas, new buildings, a clean up of the area, lower the crime rate. </li></ul><ul><li>Urban areas get over crowded as more people leave the inner city, this means the price of housing in the urban areas will increase. </li></ul><ul><li>They will be closer to jobs, reduce travel to and from work. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Case study of Bristol. <ul><li>Bristol’s dockland areas went into near terminal decline following the arrival of large cargo ships that could no longer navigate the Avon River. This was also accompanied by competition from the new docks at Avonmouth and Portbury. This prompted the closure of several industries around Bristol docks such as various tobacco factories, a sand dredging industry and lead-shot works. It left several empty, but listed buildings. </li></ul><ul><li>As the docks declined, Bristol was faced with several problems, such as growing social and economic inequalities, vast areas of derelict land and in some areas, high unemployment. </li></ul><ul><li>In order to address this problem, it was decided to redevelop the former dockland area. One of the most significant achievements was when Lloyds TSB relocated their headquarters to the docklands area. This acted as a great spur for investment. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What is gentrification and how is it connected to reurbanisation? <ul><li>Gentrification , or urban gentrification , is a phenomenon in which low-cost, physically deteriorated neighbourhoods undergo physical renovation and an increase in property values, along with an influx of wealthier residents who may displace the prior residents. </li></ul>
