    just one quick qus

    - r we likely to get penalised for puttin extra info in or is it seen as something good - cuz advice given to us has always been ''familiarise yourself with the pre-release'' but knw it seems as if though there is a lot more research needed.

    Quick of O and T of Cliffe airport

    Opportunities:

    ·inward investment·
    attraction to footloose industries·
    Urbanisation urban growth will be stimulated (a con as well!)·
    increase in tourism = growth for economy·
    seal defences may improve·
    estuaries are a growth area for development

    Threats

    ·passengers may still prefer Heathrow because it is more accessible·
    urban sprawl
    increased risk of flooding = more flood defences = problems elsewhere due to sea defences
    ·Eustatic sea level rise
    ·300 tonnes of explosives located nearby = dangerous
    ·it is a feeding ground for birds – risky because it is close to runway

    The de-icer will surely increase BOD (and yes, it does stand for biochemical oxygen demand) ? I always get this confused but basically, the amount of oxygen available in the water systems will decrease as it is taken up by the de-icer chemicals, reducing the SDI (species diversity index) as fewer organisms will be able to survive on the amount of O2 available.

    Its to show the juggernaut of planning which develops its own momentum and thus tends to squeeze out a more objective consideration of the developments in this part of Kent

    This question seems like a big piece of poo... URGH

    I think it would be good to actually see how some people have answered the question from past papers, as this was a big help with the unit 5a stuff. It was good to see the difference between an A answer and C answer.

    So the point is, does anybody have these recsources?

    This is the first time i have seen a synoptic question paper (5 mins ago) i thought it was a huge 70 mark question, but i cant belive its been split down into 9 to 12 mark questions. Which in my opinion has made life a whole lot easier?

    This may have already been asked but in my Mock exam (which I will post the questions my teachers made up for if you want). I really couldn't work out which techniques to use and how to include them. Does anyone have any ideas about how to include matrixs and other things?

    techniques could be cost benefit analysis where costs and benefits are weighed. a envionmental impact assesment could also be used but this would be dependant on the question.
    with the opinion of people a conflict matrix could be done to get an overall picture of the views interest groups have.
    what questions did you have to answer?

    thanks
