Hat are the two types of models and explain
the two types of models are the Hoyt(LEDC) and Burgess model (MEDC). The similarities between these models are that they both show land use, both show the further you go out of the CBD the cheaper the houses (in LEDC it's both cheaper+shanty)
1 of 19
What is urbanisation
Is the rise in percentage of people living in urban areas in comparison with rural area. Happens quicker in poor countries

What are the characteristics and uses of inner and outer suburbs
They have semi detached housing hence preferably4 families, easy to commute many transport links, less pollution+plenty of green space , pricing is moderate and nicer environment less vulnerable to crimes e.g pickpocket, quieter area.

Brand new town e.g Milton Keynes have been build to house over spilled population

Traffic solutions and example
Bus priority lanes, pedestrian zone , congestion charge, York park and ride

Bus Priority Lanes do what
= encourages more ppl to use it reducing the need for other cars and more reliable therfore less co2 released
