Planning of a Town

Report on the town planning of Greenfields


In this geography assingment, we were given the responsibility of planning a town. The town is called Greenfields. Planning the town included cars here over the heavy industries as light industries produce minimal pollution and don\'t really affect the surrounding units.
The heavy industrial(2,black) have been put in the most secluded area(southeast of the freeway) that was availible. I had to be very careful when placing these as they can cause heavy pollution problems, however, where I have situated them will reduce the health risks of the community because the southeast winds in winter will blow the pollution along the river avoiding urban units whilst in summer the northwest winds in will blow the pollution out of the town, also avoiding all urban units.
The green residential(expensive, for professional and business people)has been ploted on the southerly tip of Greenfields. This secluded region is elevated 50m and posses a captivating view of the exquisite town lying below. All this and only being a few minutes from the city centre.
Orange residential units(mainly industrial workers) have been placed north of the freeway. They have been put close to industries so as to minimize traveling time and cost to work, but not to close to risk the health of the occupants from pollution.
My yellow residential units(people of various occupations) have been placed as centrally as possible so evreryone will be close enough to their work(whether they work in the civic centre or in the industrial area). All six yellow residential units revolve around the major civic centre.

Report on the town planning of Greenfields


In this geography assingment, we were given the responsibility of planning a town. The town is called Greenfields. Planning the town included careful placement of roads, traffic lights, 11 residential units, a major civic and administrative centre, a minor civic centre(mainly for tourism) and 3 light industries and 2 heavy industries. I spent many hours carefully and strategically planning this town whilst considering prevailing winds, pollution, congestion etc etc. I will now go over the reasons for my structure of the town.

Urban units
I have placed my major civic centre(red) south of the freeway as it is easily acessible, a centrilised area and could be surrounded by six residential units which was necessary in the planning. My minor civic centre is positioned in the north-northeast region because it is close to the coast, river and urban units which are all vital to the tourism industry.
The light industries(3,brown) have been situated north-northwest of the town in a swamp. I plotted them in the swamp because industries were the only thing you could put in the swamp and I favoured the light industries here over the heavy industries as light industries produce minimal pollution and don\'t really affect the surrounding units.
The heavy industrial(2,black) have been put in the most secluded area(southeast of the freeway) that was availible. I had to be very careful when placing these as they can cause heavy pollution problems, however, where I have situated them will reduce the health risks of the community because the southeast winds in winter will blow the pollution along the river avoiding urban units whilst in summer the northwest winds in will blow the pollution out of the town, also avoiding all urban units.
The green residential(expensive, for professional and business people)has been ploted on the southerly tip of Greenfields. This secluded region is elevated 50m and posses a captivating view of the exquisite town lying below. All this and only being a few minutes from the city centre.
Orange residential units(mainly industrial workers) have been placed north of the freeway. They have been put close to industries so as to minimize traveling time and cost to work, but not to close to risk the health of the occupants from pollution.
My yellow residential units(people of various occupations) have been placed as centrally as possible so evreryone will be close enough to their work(whether they work in the civic centre or in the industrial area). All six yellow residential units revolve around the major civic centre.


Roads and Traffic

In my road system I hve carefully positioned three off-ramps and two on-ramps too provide maximum convenience for everyone.
