Module 2: Core Concepts in Human Geography

Specification Linkup

There is no specific reference in the specification to rural settlement as such, although Module 2, Section 11.2 has the title Settlement Processes and Patterns. This section mainly covers urbanisation and counter-urbanisation and their impacts. Some of the issues that are discussed in this case study can be related to counter-urbanisation and therefore could be used in answers on that topic.

Unit 2: Managing Change in Human Environments

Specification Linkup

This case study is absolutely central to the AS Unit 2: Managing Change in Human Environments. Rural environments constitute 50 per cent of this unit. The case study is very useful for 2.2 – How and why do rural environments vary in landscape and character? What are the processes of change that affect rural areas? It will also provide support for the options in 2.4 Rural Planning Issues – Managing rural deprivation and managing the countryside for recreation.
