In this section you will be tackling the question “Where was the CBD in St Ives in the 1970s?”. In today’s session we have talked through how best to tackle this as well as analysing the GOAD map together. It is however important that you don’t rely just on what the GOAD map shows. In order to get to the highest marks it is important that you recognise that secondary sources may have an element of bias and it is important to try and cross-correlate from a number of sources before drawing a final conclusion.
The following is a brief guide / checklist of how to complete this section:
1. Give a brief introduction to this section (i.e. what are you intending / trying to do in this section and how)
2. Analyse the GOADmap (make use of the analysis grid that we completed in lessons, a blank is available here to help you structure your thoughts if you were absent). Using your ideas from your sheet – take each street in turn and talk through its charactersitics in the 1970s – i.e. main types of land-use etc. – discuss them in relation to your expectations of a CBD. Also identify any other key features such as bus stops etc. which may be identifed on the map. It is worth ending this by acknowledging what the map can’t show
3. Write up supporting background information – you should be doing some background research into what St Ives was like in the 1970s using other secondary sources such as St Ives Town Plans, 1970s St Ives, other websites, books, photographs (or even interviews with relatives / friends – if you do this – keep a clear record of your interview so it can be evidenced for initiative marks). (you may be able to locate old photographs through the Resources Centre, St Ives Library or even the Norris Museum).
4. Finally – drawing together what you have found from the GOAD map and the other resources – draw your final conclusion as to where you think the CBD was in 1970.
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS 1970’s WRITE UP IS FRIDAY 4th JULY

Urban land use models
Burgess - Concentric Model
Hoyt Urban Model
Note how the low quality housing is next to the industrial zone, middle class next to low class and high class as far as possible from industry and low class.
Urban Model for a developing country
You should not forget that there is great wealth in the cities of the developing world and that one of the features of the developing world cities is the great contrast in living standards.
In a ring around the high class housing you find well established 'shanty towns'. These will be the oldest shanty towns in the city and are located here so that residents could find work in the CBD or in the homes of the higher-class residents.
These are not like the shanty towns in the outer circle as they have been steadily improved by the residents. Many will have electricity, water supplies, even schools and clinics. The buildings will have been improved so that corrugated iron is replaced with brick and concrete. This could have been via a redevelopment scheme as outlined in the problems and solutions scheme. Many will now be officially recognised settlements.
This zone is referred to as 'periferia' or periphery.
Surrounding this (and infilling any gaps) will be the shanty towns that would be resident to the most recent migrants and would typically have the poorest standards of living as outlined in the urban problems section.
In addition, there are sectors of industrial use (as factories locate along main roads especially those that lead directly to a port) and residential as the high classes choose to leave the polluted and over-crowded inner city.
Discuss the above model. How would this impact what the city looks like?
