The urban consolidation of inner city areas in Sydney such as Pyrmont has played a large role in the areas development of culture and future trends including the increase of high-rise residential buildings due to the increased population density. Both urban dynamics urban sprawl and urban consolidation have made a major impact on areas of Sydney’s development, future trends, ecological sustainability and in particular, the growth and population growth of the city. A major factor of urban sprawl of which impacts areas on the fringe of city of Sydney such as Liverpool and Leppington is the increased population and the expansion of the boundaries of the city. As the city expands, more affordable and larger housing become available within the outskirts. This attracts more residents triggering the increase of Sydney’s population.
This could be because Bristol has already undergone a regeneration process. This would mean that employment was quite good due to new businesses moving into the area, which would in turn lead to more money in the local economy. This is called the multiplier effect, and if a city manages to achieve it then they can be seen as successful. This could also be compared to London, as the levels of household deprivation are very similar. This could be due to the size of the city, as the population in London is huge and therefore the results are varied.
The massive migration into the suburbs led to what is known as urban sprawl. Urban sprawl is the spreading outwards of a city and making the suburbs its outskirts which is why our major cities in our country are the sizes they are today. By enlarging each cities boundaries, it lead to the creation of zoning, which is still in affect and plays a vital role in our society. Suburbanization in America was due to several factors including the over crowding of cities, pollution, new infrastructure, and the belief of a lower quality of life in the city. In this era the United States was under going some major changes that were developing the country into how we know it today.
During the period 1919-1929, industrialization had a positive impact on US society by improving the standard of living and working conditions for many Americans. This was a result of the impact industrialization had on the US economy. The result of the new emerging technologies and industry, such as the communications industry and automobile industry such as Ford Motor Company in the early 1900’s had a direct impact on the US economy, and consequently US society; “Inventions in communications and transportation, such as motion pictures, radio, telephones and automobiles, not only fuelled the boom [of the economy] but brought transformations in society”. These emerging technologies brought many changes in US social and economical structures, and subsequently had a positive impact on US society and lifestyle. It can be argued that the development of consumerism in the 1920’s, influenced by the industrialization period, had a positive impact on US society.
This meant that the fact railways were built news and especially political news got around to people faster which meant people were up to date on the news of politics. Also the other Social factor includes education therefore they are more politically aware and also more people could read and write. These played an important part in the growth of democracy in Britain by 1900. A final Social factor that increased the growth of democracy in Britain by 1900 was the Trade Unions who tried to and get better working conditions by claiming the vote and trying to get freedom of speech to make everyone equal. This then meant better employment and better work.
Population growth and subsequent increases in economic activity are the catalyst for movement of people to common areas. In the case of Australian, towns & cities emerged as people emigrated from Europe; largely from the UK in the 18th and 19th centuries. Together in population growth, the growth in ideas and innovations lead to new industries and economics. From the time of colonisation, Sydney was a town with an economy based around the maritime industry. As it was located next to an ocean port, manufacturing and trade in commodities was central to its growth.
To him it seemed inevitable that a city like Chicago would form and serve as a gateway between the east and west. He also saw the innovations of the time as being inevitable discoveries. The creation of innovations like refrigerated railroad cars and grain elevators, among many others, contributed to a more efficient connection between the producer and consumer in the marketplace. The rate of growth for Chicago came as a direct result of the increase in innovative ideas. Chicago’s extreme growth was largely responsible for creating America’s mass market.
To what extent can urban areas be sustainable? Sustainability refers to meeting the needs of current and future generations, whilst preserving the environment for future generations, also without compromising the future needs and plans. Recently the management of transport has been increasingly needed due to the increasing amount of ownerships, for example, since 1950; there are 30 million more cars on UK roads, and the increasing awareness of greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change. Over the past 30 years the world’s population has grown rapidly, also leading to rapid urban growth as people move in from the surrounding rural areas for better jobs, better quality of life and a wider variety of resources. However, by this taking place there has been a huge increase in transport congestion, as seen on 16th of February 1980.
When steam power replaced water power, industries and factories arose, creating industrialized areas which attracted more and more people with the promise of paying jobs. While the increase in America’s urban population was great for the labor market, it also had an effect on the social reforms of the areas. The overcrowding of some areas led to outbreaks of contagious diseases such as cholera and typhoid. Medical personnel
Merchants took advantage of the newly created waterways and the boom in the production and use of steam boats and railroads to move their cargo cheaply and move it further inland. The availability of cheap goods deeper inland promoted the expansion further
