Describe the possible disadvantages of redevelopment in inner city areas

Hello Y10!

OK, so here it is… a small bit of preparation for next lesson.

A good, modern example of the possible disadvantages of inner city redevlopment could come from a look at the impacts of the redevelopment in London ready for the 2012 Olympics.

Take a look at the sites below for examples of stories from local people on their perception of the redevelopment. As you can see, it is not always great for everyone!

  1. One possible disadvantage of redevelopment in an inner city area is local people may have to be rehoused and they have no guarantee that they can afford to live in the redevoloped housing.

    Another possible disadvantage of reddevolpment in an inner city area is local businesses may lose their land and be forced out of business to make way for the redevelopment.

  2. The first dis advantage is that the people who move out of thier house to get it rebuilt, they may not be able to afford the price. And pensioners may not be able to afford the rent prices.

    Another dis advantage is the localbusinesses may lose thier land in a result of redevelopment.

  3. The disadvantages could be the decline in local people in the area due to the building of Olympics, the decline in community groups due to the groups not getting the facilities they want, the factories being closed due to space needed and this can also leads to major unemployment.

    • One of the reasons of disadvantage is redevelopment in an inner city area is community people may have to be rehoused and they have no guarantee that they can have the funds for living in the redeveloped housing. Another disadvantage is the local businesses may drop their land in a result of redevelopment.

  5. The disadvantages of having a new redevelop olympics stadium in a inner city area is that a lot of local people will have lots of complaints about living near the stadium like lot of noise trouble or maybe a few complaints about moving to a new estate where they have newly bulilt houses when people having been living in the area for so long. Then it means that the local community won’t live in the area any – more and will have to leave and factories will have to shut down which results of people having low income afterwards.

    1 more disadvantage is that when the 2012 Olympics are finished what will happen to the stadium the people who were working in there will get sacked who knows? wait unit 2012

  6. One of the disadvantage is that people might might not be able to live were they used due to rise in house rents and might have to travel to work far or might just loose the job as factories might be closed down.

  7. Newham is typical of an inner city because there are many terrace houses and there is a high unemployment rate. Also people who live in Newham have a low average income.

    One disadvantage to redevelopment in an inner city is that houses will become expensive as gentrification drives up property prices. Many people in the area won’t be able to get a foot on the property ladder.

    Another disadvantage of redevelopment is that the legacy of the Olympic games may leave many people unemployed unless planners think about the local community which in turn means they can’t support themselves and there families.

    Another disadvantage of redevelopment is that facilities such as bike parks have been demolished because of the Olympics. The Olympic society promised to make facilities better but have failed to do so, angering local residents and local bikers.

    Another disadvantage of redevelopment is that factories who employed many people were closed down to make way for the Olympic stadium. This meant as a result many people have become unemployment which in turns means they are unable to support themselves until they can find a new job. It has also resulted in less money from inc0me tax which also means the government has less money to improve the local area.

    Finally another disadvantage of redevelopment is that workers who live in Newham may not have the money to pay the rent after the Olympics unless they get a well paid job.

  8. Some disadvantages of redevelopment in inner city area could possible be that people who still live there could face with many different types of pollution e.g. visual, sound. Secondly it will not help people who earn low wages and when the new houses are finished building those people might not be able to buy it because of high costs.
    Another problem could be that workers working in factories may lose their job because that factory is being knocked down, as a result of this many poeple could be homeless.
