Tidermarsh coursework

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Section 1 Introduction The hypothesis states that Tidermarsh is a good place for new housing. I will say if is true, partially true or false. The finding will be presented in the following areas: * What are the proportions and are they sustainable? * Method * Results - tables of data * What human factors affect the decision to build? * Who would be in favour of the development and why? Location The site which they are planning to build is identified as site x and is located on the east of Tidmarsh. It is 5 3/4 miles from West of Reading and 40 miles West of London. The grid reference for the site X is 74.64 (according to the OS map) Geology The site x is a farmers field. The rock in this area is chalk, which is permeable, so rainwater soaks into it. The evidence of the map that show is chalk is Chalkpit farm and Chalkpit Cortages. Landscape The site x is a flat land. The area is mainly covered by forest. The land either side is steep land. The site can have V-shape valley. Current use The site x is currently use for farmers field and it also used by walking - footpath. Transport Using the A340 road and M4 motorway we can go directly to Tidmarsh. However, the Tidmarsh Lane is the only road that we can use to go to site x. ...read more.

Put the measurement stick inside of river doing on a vertical position until it touches the river bed. Then measure the depth of the river. I need to think about the rock on the bottom of the river. 3. Wetted perimeter. The wetted perimeter is the amount of the water in contact with the river. Place a chain along the bed. Measure amount of chain that is used. 4. Velocity (speed) Measure a section of the river in 10 meters long. Stand one person upstream and the other person downstream. One person drops the tennis ball and times how much takes to go to other person. Then repeat 2 more times. 5. Gradient (angle) Measure a section of ten meters in the river. One person holds the clinometer and pulls the trigger from the top of his meter stick to the top of the other person's meter stick. Then take the reading on the clinometer. Then repeat two more times. 6. Bedload sample Take ten rocks from the river and measure them. I need to put the rocks that I have measured to the side and put back when I have measured the all ten rocks. 7. Questionnaires in Pangbourne In groups of 4, each group surveys 10 people in Pangbourne using the questionnaire. I need to make sure the same person is not asked twice. Suction 4 Analysis of the results In this section I am going to analyse the results obtained on Site 1, Site 2 and ...read more.

Conclusion

The government will not make this cost to protect the river from flooding. Section 6 What human factors affect the decision to build? In this section I will look at the human factors which affect the hypothesis. The transport is going to be a problem. Sulham Hill (the road which we use to go to site x) is narrow and has a high speed limit. In mean in this road pass 22 cars in 5 minutes. The road has a high traffic. For building on site x we to do the following: * Change speed limit. Currently is 60mphs. * Lights * Crossing for children * Speed bumps * Widen. This will cost lot of money. How will the more housing affect the village? When building housing, more people will need more shops. The business will be happy because more money will enter. However the business will be unhappy because more competition will increase. The crime will increase because of teenagers. Also, the noise would increase, when building. The visual and air pollution are also the factors which we need to consider. The view is going to change for a view with houses and shops. The local residents are going to breathe polluted air which will bring diseases and complains. For the reasons of crime, air pollution and noise will bring more complains. The NIMBYS will protest because the house can go down. More shops (which means more jobs) and parking will be required. ...read more.
