DEVELOPMENT PRINCIPLES

5.2 A Balanced Movement Network

Streets give order and structure, their purpose is to facilitate communication, access and transport, and help people know where they are, in relationship to the community and the larger region.

An Integrated Network of Streets The urban pattern that provides the most flexible use, facilitates ease of movement, provides for a variety of routes and increases legibility is an integrated grid of streets.

A grid of streets;

  • is legible and easily understood

  • becomes a network of public open spaces

  • permits a variety of land parcel sizes, therefore flexibility in development & investment

opportunities.

  • allows for a structured hierarchy of streets

  • maximises accessibility

Hierarchy of Streets Circulation of all movement should follow a clearly organised system of streets and open spaces. The proposal foresees a movement network addressing the needs of all visitors and residents.

  • Regional Connectors

  • Local Connectors

  • Local Streets

  • Boulevards

  • Neighbourhood Streets

  • Pedestrian and Non-Motorised Routes

Pedestrian Prioritisation Every fine street is one that invites leisurely, safe walking. Pedestrian and non-motorised routes should be developed to promote safety, access and circulation to and through the area. To encourage pedestrian and cycle friendly streets;

  • Make crossing points visually prominent

  • Minimise street widths at crossings

  • Introduce elements that reduce vehicle speeds and encourage walking and cycling.
