Extracts from this document...


Case Study Hull North Ferribv. Satellite / Commuter Settlement. 1. Describe the impact of the A63 (Ferriby by-pass) on North Ferriby. The A63 has made life easier for the residents of North Ferriby, noise and traffic has been significantly reduced as commuters travelling to Hull can use the by-pass instead of travelling on the B1231 through North Ferriby.

What is meant by the term satellite/commuter settlement? This is a village or town where the residents work in a nearby town or city. They live in the area and commute to work.

The houses were small so people would be almost packed into them adding to the density. The houses were scruffy looking and needed renovating. 5.To what extent were these an improvement to peoples 'Quality of life'? The council basically gave people no choice in the matter and were forced to move into the high-rise flats. The houses were an improvement on their old housing but families were separated, people wasted money on transport into town and over the years the houses became damp and run down. This means that the residents quality of life wasn't really improved, they would probably have been happier overall if they had stayed in their old houses. 6.What groups of people live here? The socio economic groups are mainly unskilled and partly skilled workers. This shows that they will most probably be making little money and most probably have a basic education so the people would have a lot of difficulty trying to get a very well paid job. ...read more.
