URBAN DESIGN FRAMEWORK
7.3 Proposed Precincts
The Linbro Park UDF provides a basis on which detailed urban, architectural, landscape and engineering designs can be developed.
Precincts allow functional areas with a particular identity to be planned as an entity. Precinct Plans aid the planning of areas as they provide further detail and could be compiled either by the public sector planning authority or by the private sector in compliance with agreed norms and standards.
Within Linbro Park, 7 Precincts are identified to aid planning. The Precincts are defined by function or by spatial logic. Precinct Plans also allow the flexibility to incorporate new dynamics into current planning as the spatial and economic dynamics of an area develop.
The Precinct Plans need to outline at least the following elements:
Definition of the functional area
Movement within the area (including parking)
Land use activities
Landscaping of the public realm
Detailed built form directives
Precinct Plans need to have the support of the majority of owners of the area, and are tools that provide further detail for the enhancement of an area. Residents or owners may take the initiative to compile Precinct Plans. These resident-initiated Precinct Plans do not however form part of the RSDF until they are approved by the Local Authority and are incorporated into the Local Spatial Framework.
