1.  Re-urbanisation: characteristics, causes, effects and planning and management issues: 



1. Use page 46 in Witherick (little book!) to...

  • Define filtering (useful diagram here!)
  • Define Gentrification
  • What are the main causes (4 of them)
  • Classify the consequences from the table on page 47


 take a look at this map!  (I can see a 'comment on' question forming from this!!) 



2. A Case study of Gentrification:

(an overview - you need to make it 'ring true' and will need to go through ALL of the resources linked here to be thorough - start with the PowerPoint.)  

  • Characteristics
  • Causes
  • Effects
  •  Planning and Management Issues.

  Use Notting Hill  as your  main case study - be detailed - specific locational supporting evidence needed - make it 'ring true'  - read through the PowerPoint and select info.


support your work with reference to other areas experiencing gentrification too...


(It has its own Community Group and Neighbourhood Development Plan to promote the local community http://ilovechatsworthroad.co.uk/)

Gentrification Blues? - read this Economist blog which points out:  Gentrification is no longer just the doing of young, single professionals. It increasingly takes in families too. It is here to stay and keep spreading to ever more unlikely locations. Even since the 2011 census, the wave has probably moved on from Brixton and Dalston, where young families are now settling. New graduates now are moving to what were once even grottier places such as Peckham and New Cross. In time, they may even make it to Newham. If so, if there is another census in 2021, it is likely to show that the “white flight” that so worries some commentators will have gone into reverse - read the article for more detail!


The disadvantages? read this article about The Chatsworth Rd, Hackney
