Introduction

Introduction I am going to attempt to find out if there is a shopping hierarchy in North West London. I will look at four shopping areas which I consider to be important shopping centres. I will study: > Pennine Drive > Golders green > The Broadwalk Shopping Centre > Brent Cross Shopping Centre Hypotheses I think that Brent Cross will be the cleanest and have the most parking and the cleanest environment. I also think that it will be the most popular in terms of people walking inside. I think that Golders Green will have the most busses and cars but not so many people as Brent Cross because its located on a main road so people do not have to walk so far. Pennine Drive I think will be the least busy and have the fewest shops, transport and people. This is because it's in a small area of town and is very small. I think that The Broadwalk will be similar to Brent Cross as they are in similar situations and are effectively rivals. I will study each of the areas and gather information on the following aspects: > Number or pedestrians which pass in 15 minutes > The flow of traffic in both directions over 10 minutes o Cars o Busses o Taxis > Availability of Parking o Number of spaces o Type of ...read more.

I gave each heading a mark out of 5 (with 1 being the Excellent and 5 being poor). These results will only give my opinion of the areas so I will collect photos to show why I gave the rating which I did.
