Year 7 Settlement assessment.
Think about the following that we have covered in class to get the highest level possible. Make sure you say what type of settlement this is going to be. Think about the problems we have covered when a settlement expands. Explain who the winners and losers would be if this settlement went ahead. Have you explained the positive and negative points this new development will have. Make sure your argument is one sided either for or against but make sure you included both sides of the argument to show that you understand both sides. Build in as many key words as you can when explaining your argument such as green belt, eco town, isolated dwelling, job creation, carbon neutral etc. Show that you understand what type of settlement this will be and why this is a good or a bad location for it. Make sure you explain what an ECO TOWN IS and what features the buildings in an eco town have that make them environmentally friendly. Explain why this development would be better or worse than regenerating the city centre of Leicester- think about what CBDs are for and why itthis eco town would need to be outside in the countryside ( what types of houses are built in the centre of towns and cities?) Include research and drawings to back your argument up. Hand it in as if it is an official report. GOOD LUCK! Ms Bradshaw
