Geography coursework gcse burgess model

An industrial sector would remain industrial as the zone would have a common advantage - perhaps a railway line or river. Industry and low-class residential areas are located along the coast or the two river valleys that provide access to the city through the coastal mountain range. This is the area often referred to as the inner city or 'zone of transition'. Also, all zones will have a mixture of land-uses. The high-class residential areas of the city fan out from the city centre to the elevated area of Zona Alta in the foothills. In addition, the division between land-uses in both models is far to clear-cut. For example, out of town council estates have prevented large high-class sector developing in other areas of Bristol. It split the land use of the city into rings, starting from the centre. It does not take any physical features into account. The buildings will have been improved so that corrugated iron is replaced with brick and concrete. This is an area of expensive housing on the outskirts of the city. The growth of any city will be influenced by the physical geography of the area. This would attract low-class housing, but repel high-class residential land use.

This is probably following the line of a main road or a railway. Many people now choose to live and work outside the city on the urban fringe - a phenomenon that is not reflected in the Burgess model. Note how the low quality housing is next to the industrial zone, middle class next to low class and high class as far as possible from industry and low class.

New working and housing trends have emerged since the model was developed. Zone 2: Inner city area twilight zone. Transition zones exist between the mainly high class and low class residential areas.

Explanation: Hoyt's model came nearly twenty years after Burgess'. The high-class residential areas of the city fan out from the city centre to the elevated area of Zona Alta in the foothills. Many will have electricity, water supplies, even schools and clinics. This could have been via a redevelopment scheme as outlined in the problems and solutions scheme. For example, a 'high class' sector would remain high class as it would be the most desirable area to live, so only the wealthiest could afford it. Industry and low-class residential areas are located along the coast or the two river valleys that provide access to the city through the coastal mountain range. Industry will also feature in this area. These will be the oldest shanty towns in the city and are located here so that residents could find work in the CBD or in the homes of the higher-class residents. The main characteristics of the model of Sao Paulo below are: 1.

Zone 3: Low class residential. Transport is much more readily available allowing more people to commute.
