Using what I have learned in my study materials, I will compare Green Lanes to City Road, Cardiff for either their similarities or differences relating to Inequalities. Green Lanes is rich in the multicultural area and is home to many diverse communities and retail businesses similar to City Road.? One of the visible inequality on Green Lanes is the traffic infrastructure. It??™s a constant tension and imbalance of social order to meet the needs of both motorists and pedestrians. The numerous controlled crossings, although help pedestrians access their destination, in turn has an adverse effect for motorists accumulating traffic and increases social disorder between motorists and pedestrians as they fight for space among the road. ? Contrasting in comparison is that City Road has developed a better infrastructure for meeting the demands of both the Is this essay helpful Join OPPapers to read more and access more than 550,000 just like it!get? better? grades motorists and pedestrians within the community.
The most visible being the traffic islands; ???the purpose of that is to make it easier for people to cross the road??? (Rodney Burman, Material Lives, 2009, Scene 1).

When watching Making social lives ( The street,2009,making social lives[DVD]) i noticed the conversation taking place when Lloyd Robson asks the auto trader newsagent Collin Buttwell how he has been affected by the opening of bigger shops and he responds by saying Tescos moving in a few blocks up, that made a difference and goes on to say how Spa actually forced a shop to close a few doors down (making social lives on city road,2009,scene 3)There are two powerful stores in the street i know, they are tescos amd waitrose, they have more access to,money,time and resorces to promote their business, weather that be in the form of advertising for more customers, better deals or outlining the financial advantages of working for a…Tracey Mountney ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? PI Y8219569Drawing Upon what you learned in City Road, outline some of the ways in which differences are made and remade on a street that you know.With what I have learned on City Road I have chosen High Street and Southchurch Road, which are part of a thriving coastal town, for my comparisons.

As Colin states ???It has knocked me a bit, The Tesco??™s opening??? (???The Street??™, 2009, scene 1).In my Streets this has seen the closure of many smaller newsagents. This can and has caused resentment amongst the locals who were opposed to Tesco??™s opening and loyal to the smaller shop owners. On the positive side big stores opening does bring about more jobs, which is a good part of reshaping society. As Georgina Blakely point out (???Making social lives???, 2009, Scene 5) some people gain from the reshaping and some people lose.??? This is definitely the case with larger stores opening. Also as a lady (Blakeley et el, 2009, p.

These can include what people find valuable, what similarities they might have and what things are distributed between people. We start to categorise people and we label them according to what we see and what we hear through other people. Inequalities in our society today are about gender; age; ethnicity; class; disability; race and nationality. I also like many others believe that my street is unique and uncommon; this is a perception derived from my daily personal experience over many years.
Nevertheless, when we observe most of the things such as different activities, the use of street space, we can begin to recognise a pattern of occurrences that will be found on any Is this essay helpful Join OPPapers to read more and access more than 550,000 just like it!get? better? grades street in the UK.On Falcon Road like City Road, I am able to see many differences and inequalities between people. It was very interesting to see how Colin the own of a local newsagent was affected because of the opening of Tescos and Spar, how his business had slowed down, as the same happened on my Road. A local newsagent shop where I use to go often after school was affected slightly with the opening of Spar opposite it but after a couple of years it had to shut down when Tescos opened up opposite and took the place of Spar. ???Some people gain from this reshaping of society??¦.other people lose??¦ It creates new inequalities and differences and it might reinforce existing inequalities and differences??™ (Making Social Lives on City Road??™, 2009)Falcon Road has people from all kinds of cultures; religions; backgrounds and class.

.Dd101 Tma02 In Light Of What You Have Learned About City Road, Describe Some Of The Inequalities On A Street Which You KnowIn this piece of work, I will try to show what inequalities I have observed on Lower High Street in Georgetown. ? Having grown up in Georgetown from the age of 8, it is a street I know well and during these years a great many changes have occurred within the town, from demographics and infrastructure to the uses of retail units in the town centre. ? Georgetown is now classed as an area of social deprivation and the town centre shows symptoms of a town in financial difficulty. ? Lower High Street itself is centred on daytime activity; there are no restaurants, cafes, bars, or other evening-based businesses.The units on the street are typical of a main street in a socially deprived area; the retail units are all aimed at the lower end of the market ??“ for example in a 100 yard section there are 3 ???cheap shops??? and 3 second-hand charity shops. ? There are no fashion chains or independent grocery traders and apart from a large Sainsburys in another part of the town centre, there is nowhere which sells Is this essay helpful Join OPPapers to read more and access more than 550,000 just like it!get? better? grades ???luxury??? items.
In the course materials (Making Social Lives DVD) we see that City Road is reflective of an ethnically diverse population. ? In contrast, although Georgetown is now over 30% Asian in population (Kirklees Council), this is not fully reflected on High Street.As I mentioned earlier, the retail units are mainly budget shops and there is nothing in the area to attract more affluent shoppers, and the only food outlet is a Greggs sandwich shop. ? There is nothing to encourage ???browser??? shoppers who would spend time in the town centre and have their lunch while they shopped in the 80s and early 90s. ? Observed foot traffic on the street are women with children, men on their own and elderly people.
The infrastructure of the road includes a one-way and two-way traffic flow system, which is newly in place. ? For hundreds of years the road was two-way. ? As I mentioned previously, the bus stops a few now ??“ most of the buses now go from the main bus station….
