First, there are the physical changes imposed on, or applied to, the rural by the middle class. These can be further divided into those who arrive in the country with the intention of contributing to their perceived community, and those who do not with to integrate. For both these categories, land is not necessarily used for arable or pastoral. Therefore tracts of what would previously have been farmed land becomes, essentially, garden. Likewise, large houses do not necessarily represent the management of estates. They are not integral to country life and can be divorced from their nearby communities and contribute only in official charges. This is one end of the scale, but the range of rural accommodation taken up by the urban-rural shift has had a significant impact on housing prices. The impact has been such that some rural councils have allocated price capped properties for the descendents of locals so that they can have a chance at finding accommodation. Symbolically, therefore, rural accommodation has become representations of 'middle class' attitudes from business acumen to urban-rural escapism and has redefined land use as such.
