To Asses the Arising Problems Caused By the Location of the Wycombe Wanders Football Ground In Adams Park.

Extracts from this document...


The aim of my coursework is to asses the arising problems caused by the location of the Wycombe Wanders Football ground in Adams Park. Since I live right close to the ground, I have first hand experience of what it is like on a match day. My prediction is fairly straightforward, the neighbourhood and the surrounding businesses will be affected intensively on a match day. Visual pollution, the cars and people going past to and fro the ground will affect the neighbourhood and the surrounding businesses. People will throw away their rubbish which will affect the environment i.e. animals, insects will suffocate in plastic bags, already caused by the industrial estate, and match days are a distraction for the local neighbouring businesses as the workers and co-workers alike will possibly want to see the match's so the businesses will be close during the match day, and money will be made by other means. ...read more.

My coursework focuses on the problems arising due to the location of the football ground. The question is asking whether the location of the football ground have an affect on the local residents and businesses. My aim is to prove it with evidence. The area I will be studying is the Sands area, this is because I live there and also because it the nearest area to the ground. In the sands area there is a large community of people living there primarily because it is a quiet and safe area. I will be conducting a survey and a traffic count on a match day. I will also ask the local businesses and some residents nearer to the ground a questionnaire. Just before you enter the Adams Park ground you go through an industrial estate on Hillbottom Road there are many factories on this road. ...read more.
