Extracts from this document...


Key Questions Graphs, Analysis and Interpretation Key Question 1 -which service centre, has the most services? Number of shops at each centre| Raw Data Shops Walthamstow 276 Ilford Exchange 165 Higham Hill Parade 11 Blackhorse Parade 12 Blackhorse Corner Shop 1 (Refer to land use map in Appendix A) (Graphs for this question is on the next page) Analysis As the graph shows that Walthamstow has the most shops out of all the other service centre but almost double and more, then it is Ilford exchange it is because Walthamstow is of a much bigger scale to the other centres o it has more area to build more shop and the other centre do not have that facility. Lowest amount of shops is the corner shop and the two parade of shop are very close in terms of number of shops. Interpretation This does answer my key question as it clearly tell me that Walthamstow has the most shops and that the corner shop has the least there are theory's to these to there outcomes that have be been proven correct by the result and the parade of shops both stand near each other with almost the same amount. But overall it tells me that Walthamstow has the most services following Ilford exchange shopping centre. Questionnaire - 3.What is your purpose for coming here? Raw Data Shopping Day out Work Break Other Walthamstow 9 0 1 0 0 Ilford Exchange 9 1 0 0 0 Higham Hill Parade 8 0 0 0 2 Blackhorse Parade 9 0 1 0 0 Blackhorse Corner Shop 10 0 0 0 0 (Graph for this question is on the next page) Analysis - As you can see in the graph attached is that the main reason people come to all of the service centres is that they come there for shopping with the odd ones for work within the centre and for a day out or a break. ...read more.


Analysis The graph clearly shows that Walthamstow is the largest centre with 600 paces in length this is because it contains that most shop out of all the service centres and is known as the longest market in Europe, followed by Ilford exchange with 400, then Blackhorse parade with 35, then Higham hill parade with 30 and last in the paces count is the corner shop with 2 paces this is because it only contains of one shop. Interpretation Walthamstow came first as it had that most shops so it will cover a severe amount of land and meaning it ill be long in length also it has large shops covering a vast amount of area. The results answer my key question because it tells me that clearly that Walthamstow has the largest area as it has the most paces count out of all of the service centres, followed by Ilford with had less shops and therefore has a less paces count than Walthamstow. Blackhorse and Higham hill parade of shops are very close it may vary and this is due to they both have nearly same amount of shops and it proves that the results re correct and that there is not difference in results, the corner shop is proven to be last as it has one shop so it will have the least paces count Key Question 4 - Does the size of the service centre affect its sphere of influence? The sphere of influence map and question 1 on the questionnaire (SOI map is on next few pages) (List of addresses on Appendix B) Analysis The size of the centre does affect the sphere of influence as the larger the centre the larger the sphere of influence and if the centre is small e.g. corner shop, smallest sphere of influence as you can see from the sphere of influence map, this is because people are prepared to travel long distances to come to centre with also of services available to the centre. ...read more.


And people visit the small centre of any days does the week; as it does not affect them much open all day even on Sundays Key Question 8 - Which service centre is environmentally cleanest? Environmental survey Graph Raw Data Litter Care for pavement Street furniture Traffic Noise Poorly decorated buildings Vandalism Empty buildings Air pollution Walthamstow Top 3 2 3 3 4 3 5 5 4 Walthamstow Bottom 2 3 3 2 3 3 4 3 4 Walthamstow -Selbourne Walk 5 5 4 4 4 4 5 3 5 Ilford Exchange- Top 4 4 3 4 3 5 5 4 4 Ilford Exchange -Bottom 3 3 3 2 4 4 4 4 2 Ilford Exchange Centre 5 5 3 5 4 5 5 4 5 Higham Hill Parade 4 2 1 4 5 2 1 4 5 Blackhorse Parade 3 2 3 4 4 1 3 4 5 Blackhorse Corner Shop 4 1 1 4 4 2 3 5 3 (Graph for this question is on next page) Analysis As you can see from the graph that Walthamstow -Selbourne walk and Ilford exchange are the centres with the highest grades in each observation. But as you can see Ilford exchange had ore higher grades than Walthamstow and the re other 3 centre so it is at the top. And it shows me that Higham hill is 3rd highest as it is in a rural area then it is the corner shop and last one is Blackhorse/forest road parade of shops. Interpretation My analysis does answer my key questions as it shows me that Ilford exchange is the cleanest as it is an indoor complex and followed by Walthamstow -Selbourne walk, then its Higham hill parade of shops as it is in a rural area meaning not many people and cleaner environment. Fourth is corner shop as it is small and it is easier to keep clean than large centres and last one is Blackhorse/forest road corner shop this is as it is in a CBD area and next to a cross road and a pub meaning alot off notice and pollution. ...read more.
