Abstract

The changing populations, functions and interactions of small rural settlements are reviewed. A case study in Wellington County Ontario indicates that a degree of local retail specialization and numerous employment opportunities have evolved in small settlements there. Widespread use of the car has created strong local commuting links and shopping patterns, rather than close associations with places over 300000. Hart's "dispersed city" concept is proposed to distinguish this type of spatial organization from the urban field and from traditional central place hierarchies.
