LAYERS OF IMPLEMENTATION

6.3 A Local District Network

A series of local districts nodes are proposed throughout Linbro Park, positioned along the main intersections at the traffic circles of the Mobility

Avenue routes.

A 500m or 5-7

minute walking

radius also

influences the spacing between each node.

This permits ‘local centres’ that can develop either in sequence, phased, or independent of one- another.

If the local district network is connected through strong, well-defined, corridors, then each ‘centre’ becomes an arrival foyer for its specific local district.

Longmeadow

Land uses around local district centres should promote and support the greatest variety of uses and the highest density.

These local district centres should include:

  • Formal public space,

  • Shopping and business activities

  • Public or Social amenities, and

  • Transport facilities.

Emphasizing the centre of nodes through physical form such as height, density, landmarks and activity patterns like shopping, business, leisure and community uses will help define and create memorable places.
