1.10 rural and urban areas

  1. 1. Rural and Urban Areas By the end of this lesson you will have: • Considered the features of rural and urban populations • Analysed maps to recognise features of the 4 settlement areas • Brought together your case study information to prepare yourself for exam questions
  2. 2. 4 areas of settlement • • • • Inner-city are Suburban area Rural-urban fringe area Rural settlement area • Q. Which area do you think Audley and Whalley fall under? • Q. What area do you think you live in and why?
  3. 3. Changes in Rural Settlements • Remote rural areas are declining which has many consequences: • Many of those left behind are elderly • Houses are bought as second homes giving a ‘ghost town’ effect • Deprivation • Social isolation • Q. What do you think this population structure would look like? • Q. How can we combat this?
  4. 4. Changes in Rural Settlements • Rural-urban fringes are expanding which has many consequences: • Several small, new housing estates are built which local people can’t afford • Car congestion increases • Village life is little during the day • Maintaining rural identity is key • Q. How do Whalley try to maintain a rural identity?
  5. 5. Changes for the better/worse TASK: On your group’s A4 picture, write on the back what you think the changes for the better/worse are for these services
  6. 6. Map Reading – Rural & Urban • Use the laminated sheets to in groups analyse the map features of these following areas: • • • • Inner-city Suburban Rural-Urban fringe Rural Settlement • TASK: Make notes of the recognisable features, thinking of services, amenities, transport links, types of housing
  7. 7. Exam Practise • Using your knowledge of settlement areas, contrast the housing characteristics of TWO chosen settlement areas (4) • Inner-city housing tends to be either terraced or high rise flats. The housing is small, and often offers only two-three bedrooms. There tends to be little garden space and back to back housing. Rural settlement areas can also have terraced housing, but these tend to be cottages and are often renovated. We also see larger detached homes and cottages which have more garden space and drives. Rural housing also incorporates renovated barns.
  8. 8. Census Information • You can use census information to summarise the main characteristics of areas • What sort of census information can we use from the Audley and Whalley census statistics? • As a group we will analyse some census infmormation
  9. 9. Case Study Re-Cap • Go through our worksheets and draw out good statistics to share • We need to be able to comment on: • The housing • The social welfare • The services
