  6. Introduction to the Concentric Zone Model The concentric zone model, also known as the Burgess model or the CCD model, is one of the earliest theoretical models to explain urban social structures. It was created by sociologist Ernest Burgess in 1925 O Burgess presented a descriptive urban land use model, which divided cities in a set of concentric circles expanding from the downtown to the suburbs. O This representation was built from Burgess' observations of a number of American cities, notably Chicago, for which he provided empirical evidence,


  7. Main Idea of the model O The model assumes a relationship between the socio-economic status (mainly income) of households and the distance from the Central Business District (CBD) O The further from the CBD, the better the quality of housing, but the longer the commuting time. Thus, accessing better housing is done at the expense of longer commuting times (and costs).

  9. Criticisms O The model has been challenged by many contemporary urban geographers. First, the model does not work well with cities outside the United States, in particular with those developed under different historical contexts. Even in the United States, because of changes such as advancement in transportation and information technology and transformation in global economy, cities are no longer organized with clear "zones" Concentric Zone Model by Park and Burgess (1925) 14


  10. In conclusion.... O However, the Burgess model remains useful as a concept explaining concentric urban development, as a way to introduce the complexity of urban land use and to explain urban growth in American cities in the early-mid 20th century. 18

  12. Criticisms O Common criticisms also include the absence of considering Decentralization - of shops, manufacturing industry and entertainment. O Urban regeneration and gentrification more expensive property can be O O O found in formerly 'low class' housing areas. Many new housing estates were built on the edges of cities in Britain. It does not address local urban politics and forces of globalization. The model does not fit polycentric cities, for example Stoke-on-Trent. 16
