Aims of the Day:

  • To reinforce our learning for the Paper 1 population section and develop a case study of an area of rural settlement: 

“The ways natural population change and migration affect the character of rural and urban areas. Settlement case studies – comparing two (or more) of the following areas – an inner city area, a suburban area, an area of rural/urban fringe and an area of rural settlement. To include reference to characteristics such as: housing, ethnicity, age structure, wealth and employment and the provision of services. The implications of the above for social welfare.”

  • In order to extend your learning about rural settlement change you could investigate the question “does rural settlement on the Gower Peninsula conform to Cloke’s model of rural-urban continuum?

    Cloke's 1979 model of the structure of the urban-rural continuum shows how land-use might change with distance from the city. In this model, there is no single typical rural settlement, but rather a spectrum between declining villages in the deep countryside to suburbanised villages and overspill towns in the urban fringe.
