The aim of the coursework is to prove or disprove the following hypothesis: 'There is a better quality of environment in a suburban area than in an inner city area' What is meant by this is that the standards of living would be higher in a suburban area compared to an inner city area. This is because the inner city is a densely populated and more crowded unlike the more pleasant spaced out suburban environment. The town which I have decided to investigate is my hometown of Billingham. The reasons that I have chosen billingham are because I live there and I know the area very well and as I live there I don't need any transport to get me there, also I know my way around billingham very well. Billingham used to be an important industrial town around the mid-twentieth century along with the rest of the Teesside area. It was renowned for its shipbuilding and steel works along with the deep docks of the river tees. ...read more.


as my suburban area and the Low Grange area (highlighted by the yellow on the map) as my inner city area. In each of the areas that I chosen I have chosen 5 sample points to help collect results from. The 5 streets that I have chosen in the inner city area are Tintern Avenue, Melrose Avenue, Reivaulx Ave, Kenilworth Road and Finchale Ave. The reasons why I have chosen these streets are because they are evenly spread out around the inner city area and will help me to get better results for the area. The 5 streets that I chose for my other area are Wolviston Back Lane, Cockfield Ave, Springwell Close, Tunstall Ave and Bielby Ave. I also chose these areas so that I could get an overall view of the area which would help me get fair results. I have chosen a number of different ways to help me to answer the hypothesis, these ways are taking photographs, environmental index recording sheets, a noise survey, a traffic survey, a pedestrian survey and a questionnaire. ...read more.


While I have been doing this work I should have worked with a partner who lived in the suburban area so that the results should be fairer instead of having to do all of the work my self. The results from my traffic and pedestrian only show results from one time during the day, so I don't get a clear view of how the traffic is at different times of the day or how many people are out at different times during the day. To make my results fairer I could have went back to the sample points at different times through the day to help me get better results for the traffic and also for the noise levels. My noise level survey could be classed as incorrect because what I consider to be loud may not be considered as very loud by another person who is used to that noise level, this is another limitation of my project. My prediction for the projects is that the suburban area will have higher standards of living than in the inner city area. This will prove the original hypothesis. wn. he near future. this an inner city area. this ...read more.
