The transformation of a small town: Frenton, between 1990 and 2012 is portrayed in the given maps.
In 1990, Frenton was a small town, which was bisected into almost equal parts by the High Street. Towards the immediate East of the street, there was a café and a park and next to it, there were settlements (Houses). A theatre and some shops were there towards the South-east of the street. The four major establishments to the West of the street were a school, a bank, a hospital and a library. There was also a playing field with trees at the North of the town, adjacent to the street.
After 22 years, the Eastern part of the High Street changed a lot. Houses were developed to flats, which expanded towards the North. The Café and park got transformed to a hotel and a golf course. A supermarket replaced shops, whereas a cinema replaced the theatre. Settlements further expanded at the North, crossing the street, and the hospital increased its size. A restaurant occupied the space of the bank. Trees at the South were cleared for a technopark.
Overall, the development of the town in this short span of time was tremendous.
