Land Use

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify different Land Use (from OS Map).

  • Explain why the Land Use is suitable for that area.






Glacial landscapes upland l.jpg
Glacial Landscapes(Upland)

Steep sides and infertile soil allows for forestry and recreation and main land use.

Flat bottom of U-shaped valley used for some farming, settlement and communications.

Ribbon lakes and Corrie Lochs can be used for water storage and HEP.


Glacial landscapes lowland l.jpg
Glacial Landscapes(Lowland)

Boulder Clay is flat and fertile allowing for arable farming.

Terminal Moraine is hilly and infertile used for health or forestry.

Outwash Plain is flat but infertile, however sands and gravels have been ‘sorted’ allowing for quarrying.


River landscapes upper course l.jpg
River Landscapes (Upper Course)

V – Shaped valleys are steep with infertile soils.

Land use is forestry and hill sheep farming. Some recreation such as water sports and hill walking.


River landscapes middle lower course l.jpg
River Landscapes(Middle & Lower Course)

Floodplains are flat containing fertile alluvium soil.

Land use is farming both arable and livestock, also settlement and communications.

Near river mouth may also use water for cooling for industry and deep water for ports / docks.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a particular site for a National Park?

  • Need good road access so that people can come and enjoy the park

  • Near large cities so that the NP will be used

  • Need unspoilt scenery

  • Need a variety of types of scenery eg. Forests, open moorland, mountains, lakes

  • Need a honey-pot village to take pressure off other areas

  • Roads encourage access and increase pressure on land such as footpath erosion

  • Closer to cities means that more people will come and cause the roads to be congested

  • Variety of landuses increases land use conflict
