  14. 14. Why does the UK need more houses? @davidErogers
  15. 15. @davidErogers
  16. 16. Why does the UK need new houses? 1. Draw a line graph predicting what has happened to the UK’s population over time. 2. Describe your prediction in words: ‘I predict that the UK’s population has…..’Population (y) Time (x) Trends v Variation video @davidErogers
  17. 17. Data detectives! Describe the Trend Describe the variation @davidErogers
  18. 18. Look at this graph…1. Describe changes in the UK’s annual population change since 1992. 2. What may happen in the future? @davidErogers
  19. 19. The drivers of household demand… 2.4m 28% ▲ 3.6m 8% ▲ 1.7m 19% ▼ The growth in people aged 65 and over living alone is partly due to… …the ageing population. Fewer 16 to 44-year-olds are living alone, which may be because… …it has become less affordable. The increase in people living alone aged 45 to 64 is possibly due to … …a rise in divorced people and a fall in married people. @davidErogers
  20. 20. Look at this graph… Using the knowledge from this lesson so far, what problems does this graph represent? @davidErogers
  21. 21. Why are more houses needed? Consider the main changes in the UK’s population. Explain why new homes are needed. UK population is increasing… …this means that… The UK’s life expectancy is increasing... …this means that… The number of houses being built is decreasing… …this means that… The number one-person households is increasing… …this means that… The majority of homes in the UK are under occupied… …this means that… House prices are high… …this means that… @davidErogers
  22. 22. How have populations changed across the UK?Do now: Using the shapes below, create a sketch map of the UK. You may have to rotate them and resize. Extension: Mark on the location of: London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast @davidErogers
  23. 23. Look at this graph… Write a description of the long term changes in international net migration. @davidErogers
  24. 24. What is internal migration? Internal migration is the movement of people within a country or region, in this case within the UK. What push and pull factors would cause people to migrate within the UK? Example Internal or International? Syria to London Cardiff to Southampton Australia to Glasgow South Africa to Newcastle Republic of Ireland to Exeter Belfast to Cardiff Brighton to Worthing Beijing to Glossop Carmarthen to Portsmouth New York to Blackpool @davidErogers
  25. 25. Look at this graph… What are the push and pull factors that would cause people to decide to move within the UK? Think about: Who might be moving? Why are they moving? Where are they moving to? @davidErogers
  26. 26. Look at these maps… The maps show how local populations have changed in the UK. From looking at these maps, what does it tell us about housing demand across the UK? @davidErogers
  27. 27. Explore a map of your area… Does your local area have a positive or negative net migration figure? Where has to largest negative net migration figure? Where has the largest positive net migration figure? @davidErogers
  28. 28. Where is housing needed the most? Key Region Average annual increase in houses needed between 2008 and 2033 (thousands) Total increase of houses needed 2008- 2033 North East 8 19% North West 22 18% Yorkshire & The Humber 27 31% East Midlands 22 29% West Midlands 18 20% East 32 34% London 36 28% South East 39 28% South West 27 30% England 232 27% 1. Using the Average annual increase column, create a key. 2. Create a choropleth map by shading each region. You should use the same shade, and use a darker shade to show where most new houses are needed. 3. In your exercise book, describe where the highest demand for new houses is. Compare this to the region which you live in. 4. Describe the trend for England as a whole. Does the country need more or fewer homes? @davidErogers
