ribbon development

  Urban sprawl along the main roads leading from a built-up area, which may generate the creation of a conurbation. Locations on such routes usually offer businesses relatively cheap but accessible sites plus potential custom from passers-by. Within built-up areas, the term is often used to describe strings of commercial land uses along the main roads leading into major centres, which offer the same advantages. (RJJ)
