Access to services in Brighton CBD Is equal for different groups of people

Extracts from this document...


Introduction On Tuesday 22nd May 2001, year 10 went to Brighton for the day to say whether we agree or disagree with the hypothesis: " Access to services in Brighton CBD Is equal for different groups of people" We had 4 main areas to study, they were: * The Lanes * New Road * Western Road * Churchill Square. When we got there we were split up into 4 different groups and went off to study the 4 areas. For all the different areas, we had a number of worksheets to work through. These included a questionnaire, land use map, data collection sheets, we also had to find out about parking and bus details, when we was in each different area we had to take photos and draw sketches. Services Found Within The CBD! The Lanes The services we found in the lanes were mainly high order shops. Most of the shops were jewelry shops. There were also a small number of personal services, low order shops and food, entertainment and leisure. Western Road The services we found in the Western Road consist loads of high order shops like Top Shop and JD Sports. There weren't that many low order shops, but there was a small number scattered around. ...read more.


There was also a new style of bus, which had a lower step, so the elderly or mums with buggies didn't have to struggle to get on the bus. The parking in New Road was mostly disabled throughout the high street. In one part of New Road there is a car park, which opens at 7am and closes at 7pm, the cost to park in the car park is �1.00 an hour. Churchill Square Accessibility to Churchill Square is fairly good because the services are accessible to different groups of people. There are also a few car parks. And Churchill Square actually has a private car park for the department store users, which costs 60p an hour. Inside the private car park there is allocated parking for disabled drivers or parents with children, the car park also has spaces for 1600 cars, it is open 24/7. The buses run from Patchen to Hollingdean, the last bus comes at 11pm and they run about every 20 minutes. The floor of the car park is smooth and not rough and uneven so it makes movement for pushchairs and wheelchairs very easy. There are also lifts and stairs, which can take you directly into the department store. ...read more.


Churchill Square's car park, which is open for 24 hrs a day AND is cheap and always available and the bus service runs every 20 minutes. Whereas the car park, which is situated in New Road, shuts at 7pm so if you missed the closing time your car would be shut in the car park till early the next morning. In The Lanes there is only room for disabled people, there are no other parking places, and the nearest car park to The Lanes is Churchill Square. Evaluation I think that my fieldwork went ok in Brighton. I had one big problem and that was that I didn't actually go to brighton so I had to rely on my own knowledge of Brighton and on my friends data and photos, but considering that fact I think I have done well. I had all the information that I needed, but I had the disadvantage of missing a few little details such as some of the opening and closing times of places that sort of thing. I have learnt a lot from my visit to Brighton; I have learnt that people in wheelchairs do not have a variety of shopping areas allocated to them due to them being disabled. I have also learnt that not all areas of Britain accommodate to allow disabled or young mothers with prams in them. ...read more.
