Sydney - Economic Character Activity
Urban dynamics have shaped the city of Sydney. Over time the economic character, nature and location of land has changed. Economic character refers to how much particular areas, or pieces of land are worth. Nature refers to the type or kind of use. For example, within residential land there can be a variety of housing, or within commercial land there can be a variety of different type of shopping centres, malls, office buildings, etc. Location refers to the way in within land use is distributed throughout the city.
The main types of land use within the city of Sydney can be categorised as residential (housing), commercial (business and retailing), and industrial (factories and manufacturing).

- statistics which support your key points
- at least two maps (to show change over time)
- an article which supports what you are stating
You must prepare and distribute a two page handout. Your presentation should go for 8-10 minutes and should include a range of simulus (visual aids, etc).
