LAYERS OF IMPLEMENTATION
Open Space System
6.4 Invest in the Public Realm
The UDF proposes an integrated and connected network or ‘green corridor’ of public open spaces, whereby;
Open spaces bordering the N3 freeway and K113,
link into Linbro Park and its surroundings.
Current road servitudes are used to extend and
link the open spaces.
The street and pedestrian network is promoted as
an extension of the open space system through planting of street-trees to reinforce and extend a green corridor network.
The plan also promotes the establishment of a variety of smaller public common spaces, such as;
Formal squares at local district centres,
Play-parks in residential areas,
Smaller parks or squares within commercial
Sports fields that carry the interest of both schools
and the community.
In defining the public open space system, the treatment and edge conditions facing onto the public realm should encourage;
Land-uses that promote active edges, and
Buildings that overlook and are orientated towards
the street, square or park.
