Aim
To see what urban growth and decline does to the environment and population of Pyrmont.

Focus Questions
1. How has Pyrmont’s buildings changed since the area has seen growth? 2. How has urban growth and decline affected the population? A plan to research the issue

When and how will information be collected?
I had an excursion around Sydney Harbour on 11 May to help attain information.

What solutions are proposed to manage the issue?
Scattering alertness through advertising

Also, strict rules can be presented to help stop the exceeding rate of urban growth and decline.

To whom will I report my research findings and proposed actions (citizenship) ? In this case, I have to report my findings and proposed actions with a speech addressed to the Pyrmont community.

Part B
Collecting and collating and analysis

Primary Research
