Intro In this study I am going to try and find out this hypothesis, which is to see if ' sloughs shopping environment has improved'. And to do this I need to find out quite a lot of information for example I need to know where sloughs catchment area is etc. To start with I am going to talk about sloughs shopping environment in general: where it is, what competition it's got. Sloughs CBD, it's Central Business District, is usually crammed full of shops and is where everyone, usually, goes to shop but lately it has had a bit of competition from shopping areas that have developed on the outskirts of the town and one of the reasons why it is competition for the CBD is because they are easier to get to then going all the way into the centre of town to shop. Sloughs CBD is trying to bring back the people that now shop on the outskirts of town and the 'convenient' stores and bring them back into the CBD because of the lack of interest in the CBD. In this investigation I am investigating the above hypothesis for my study in Slough. ...read more.


A copy of this questionnaire can be seen in the Appendix and the land use survey can be seen on page in the Results section. On the day it was quite overcast but not that miserable and was quite warm. Sloughs shopping environment consists of 4 main shopping areas: The Queensmere, the Observatory, the market and the high street and most recently, the introduction of Tescos, over the years many changes have been made to sloughs shopping environment. For example the amount of new shops that have been built or that have replaced others before it like Dixon's is now Curry Digital etc. The High street has been upgraded due to the introduction of new flower baskets and benches and there are more litterbins dotted around it has become tidier due to the increase of litter bins so it looks better. The Observatory shopping centre and the Queensmere have both been refurbished so they have new shops as well and there is more greenery inside as well as outside and they have ornamental decorations like the metal tree outside. New bus routes going to and from slough have made the access to slough even easier for people that don't have any other means of getting there and that live far away. ...read more.


the day because most of the time was taken up due to people that couldn't be bothered or didn't have enough time to answer our questions. In my opinion looking at the results and my own analysis I have come to the conclusion that Sloughs shopping environment has improved a great deal and because of the added rubbish bins it has become tidier as well and it has interested and brought more people to it because of the adding of shops and the amount of greenery has given a busy place some colour as well and it looks better inside and out with ornamental decorations and the greenery etc. Evaluation In this piece of coursework I feel I have done not so badly it could be improved more with pictures and more detail and it could have another graph or two as well. The limitations of this piece of coursework were entirely my fault by not being prepared in not getting the pictures off the shared area and not doing another graph. I suggest that this study could be improved by having more depth and detail in the different areas the graphs to have more depth explanatory and to have made more use of the shared area and the internet. ...read more.
