Introduction

The aim of this fieldwork day is to comprehensively study the geographical features display by the "out of town" retailing/ service area known as Culverhouse Cross in Cardiff. In order to achieve our aim we must identify our objectives or hypotheses. 1. Why has a service/retailing area developed at Culver house cross? 2. Do Customers prefer shopping in Culverhouse cross to the CBD of Cardiff? 3. Has the development of retailing outlets affected traffic flows in this part of Cardiff? 4. Are there adequate facilities for pedestrians to move easily between the businesses located at Culverhouse cross? This Geography Coursework contains 20% of Geography exam. For my G.C.S.E I decide to go to Culver house cross because I could not do physical fieldwork due to the outbreak of foot and mouth disease. Culverhouse cross is built on the outer skates of town in a highland area. I decide to go to an out of town retailing area. ...read more.

The 36% of people who came to these retailing shops had other reasons which I will mention later in my project. A lot of people who lived 10miles or more away from Culverhouse Cross travel to go to this place to go and do their shopping but not a large number of people go only 17%. The majority of people who go to Culverhouse Cross live nearer to the place. The percentage of people who live nearer to shopping centre is 54%, these people might go to Culverhouse Cross because it is the nearest place to them than to catch a bus or use a lot of fuel going to the CBD of Cardiff. I think a lot of people also love going shopping there because most of popular shops are based there so there is no need to go to town. The main shops there are Tesco, Marks and Spencer and many more. ...read more.

Conclusion

Just by looking at the bar graph you can easily spot that there are lot of people use cars as their means of transport to get to Culverhouse Cross. It seems the people do not mind the traffic congestion even though they think it's a big problem they keep going shopping there. Infect 58% of people think there should be more retail parks only a few don't agree. I have noticed that the traffic congestion is a very big problem in this retail park and they should build more roads for other cars to pass and to avoid this congestion. Are there Adequate Facilities for Pedestrians to move easily between the businesses located at Culverhouse Cross When I visited this retail park I noticed that this place was a very safe place for pedestrians they had traffic lights, zebra crossings these will help the 9% of people who go to this place for their shopping. There are a lot of people who visit Culverhouse Cross 40% of these people go shopping there at least once per week. ...read more.
