  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Cabot Circus is a shopping centre in Bristol, England. It is adjacent to Broadmead, a shopping district in Bristol city centre. The Cabot Circus development area contains shops, offices, a cinema, hotel and 250 apartments. It covers a total of 139,350 m2 floor space, of which 92,900 m2 is retail outlets and leisure facilities. It opened in September 2008, after a ten year planning and building project costing £500 million. Cabot Circus has over 120 shops, two department stores, several restaurants, a thirteen-screen Showcase Cinema de Lux, a Jungle Rumble Adventure Golf centre and is split into two areas, the circus itself and Quakers Friars. The Circus is divided into three streets and multiple levels. Outlets include New Look, Urban Outfitters, Zara, Hollister Co, H&M, The Disney Store and House of Fraser. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Transport <ul><li>Cabot Circus is easily accessible by a variety of transport. Buses that run every fifteen minutes provide an easy public transport route that runs directly to Cabot Circus. It also provides people using private transport with the places to facilitate there needs. For example it has 2,500 car parking spaces, with disabled and &quot;parent and toddler bays, plus electric car bays equipped with chargers. Prices are biased towards short-stay shoppers—£1 an hour to park Mondays to Saturdays (over 7 hours £16) and £2 to park all day on a Sunday. The evening parking rate (5pm-7am) is charged at £1. Drivers can also access the centre by using one of Bristol's three Park and Ride services; Long Ashton, Portway and Bath Road. From September to December 2008, there was a temporary weekend park and ride scheme from Frenchay to Cabot Circus. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Positive Views <ul><li>- Cabot circus has provided people all over Bristol with a place to shop for clothes, food and essentials; which can be easily accessed by public transport or car. </li></ul><ul><li>- Cabot Circus has also boosted the local economy as it has created thousands of new jobs for people living in Bristol. This means that a lot of people that were currently living on benefits and not helping the local economy can now get a job and begin to help the local economy. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Negative Views <ul><li>- Cabot Circus could have negatively affected people that live around it, as there is always large amounts of traffic in the city centre making it very difficult to get around. </li></ul><ul><li>- Older people within Bristol may not find Cabot Circus as attractive as the younger generation as they do not share the same interests in clothes, DVD's and games. Also they may find the crowds of younger people daunting. </li></ul><ul><li>- Small local businesses in Bristol will lose a lot of business as people are more likely to shop at well known stores such as Burton, Topman and Greggs as appose to unknown local stores. This will result in the local economy declining and making the city more reliant on outside stores. </li></ul>
