Homework 2: What is the CBD like?

Leave a comment

The Central Business District of a UK city can be divided into the CORE, where the largest and most profitable businesses locate (they can take advantage of the greatest number of customers and afford the higher rents) and the FRAME which contains the less profitable businesses and transport terminals like bus stations. This diagram explains the idea.


Use Google Maps and Streetview to identify four locations in the CBD of either Taunton or Exeter. You have to illustrate the core, frame, a zone of improvement and a zone of decay. Make a screenshot, crop it and upload to Posterous with a brief description of why you selected it. 

Here’s an example:

The Quay at Exeter is a zone of improvement with new housing and leisure facilites.
