Whether Aberystwyth Fits Mann’S Model

Extracts from this document...


Whether Aberystwyth fits Mann's Model Hypothesis one tested whether Aberystwyth fits Mann's Model. The graph showing Mann's model shows that the model does fit Aberystwyth with Retail being mainly in the CBD and low cost housing surrounding (see map) However some anomalies appeared showing high or middle class housing in the CBD this showed that there must have been some redevelopment within the area because young buildings were built. But there is some retail in the North transect showing new development of industrial warehouse sales.

Hypothesis three, which shows a complete correlation with the theory graph (see appendix two) shows that Aberyswth, has a decrease in height as you leave the CBD.
