Stratford london 2012 - an area under change. Scope for green development.

Extracts from this essay...

Introduction

Stratford-An area for change Stratford shopping centre Water lane Road Waddington Road Gerry Raffles Square 2: I visited those places above to explore if my area is a sustainable community and find out what is needed in a development. In order to do that I have to create a questionnaire for public people to ask for their opinion about changes of Stratford, I took photographs to back up my points as well as note down the sustainability of those area and other useful information given by a talk from a representative of the Olympics 2012. Sustainability means proving long term needs for people and to make sure the environment is healthy so people would want to stay in the area. As I visited places I took pictures and gave each place a score out of 10, rating how densely the building is, building material, how water and energy being measured, transports, landscape, social mix, recreation, air pollution, recycling, economic opportunity and car parking. 3: Firstly, I went to Gerry Raffles Square building, which located behind Stratford shopping centre and to the north. This building originally built for offices but then changed in to accommodation for local residents. Charles Dillon bought this area in the 1870s to set up a theatre then it later on became the Stratford Theatre Royal. The theatre was under threat with the construction of the shopping centre in 1970. Gerry Raffles managed to keep the area clean and redecorated it. After that building was built in the early 21st century, it was then chosen to name after him. This flat has 10 stories therefore it has high densities. Each storey has double glazing windows as well as blinds for blocking the sun. There is also a balcony but the view is not as nice as the shopping centre is right in front of it. The flat is made of metals, glass and bricks.

Middle

There were 65 people took part in our little survey and more than half lived in Newham and 24 were not Newham residents. This shows a lot of people passing through this area or go to work here. Above graph shows people from different locations in Newham that were in Stratford. My figure read that majority residents are from E6 and E15. It is because E15 is Stratford therefore a lot of people would be out shopping; furthermore they don't have to travel far. E6 residents come to Stratford for shopping or going to work, there were 12 or more at the mall. Others just doing the same thing like people in Little Ilford or Manor Park. E7, E12 and E13 have got the same amount of people which is 5 but there is a possibility that more than 5 people from those area could be there too. Why would people from the Little Ilford come all the way to Stratford when they have a bigger shopping centre near them? That suggest they could come to Stratford for the transport. The lowest number of people is 2 and come from E16. This could be that they prefer Gallions Reach Retail Park over Stratford shopping centre. There are 21 people who work in the borough. By linking this result in with my employment graph, people who live in work in Newham (21/24), their jobs probably are health career, hospitality, logistics and transport. Majority people are working for the education as teachers or the transport industry. People who don't work in Newham work in some where like in the city because they come to Stratford for the train to go to work. My next two graphs are for area of employment. These are the departments of work which they may work for. However, there some unemployed whom I believe were student and people relying on benefits. My figure shows that there are 7 people who work in the administration department, followed by education and health care.

Conclusion

If people want to enter the park, they have to go by foot as there is no bus. They can ride the bicycle because it does no harm to the environment. There is a train station there so getting around shouldn't be a problem. 12: I have chosen these designs for my buildings in the village is because they are made of good materials such as glass. They let in lights and absorb sunlight to keep the heat in so people would use less electricity. Furthermore, they have got interesting shapes and are built on a good location. It is an excellent location because it connects with important places like central London. People can always use the trains. There is also a service for tourists using Euro star. After the Olympics, people in the area will have so many benefits of using the facilities. Tourists from all over the world would come here to view this beautiful park. This proves to people that Newham is a creative area and this development has regenerated the image of this borough. Additionally, local residents would have more jobs that available for all level of skills. This will make them stay in the borough and work for Newham. This park has plenty of services and other leisure facilities suitable for people of all ages. Newham residents would stay in their borough and wouldn't move to a different area. This will bring the economy of Newham to higher level. I have included all people's need and took in consideration from their opinion when I did the survey in Stratford. There would be more street cleaners to keep Newham clean and more shops because people have such a high demand on this. Young people would not have to be on street instead they can get a part time job or seek leisure in the ice rink in the village. I believe this will reduce the knife crime in the borough. Everybody's safety is very important and there is a security unit which will keep them safe all the time. ?? ?? ?? ?? HALLY 10R GEO
