Structure of Urban Design Framework Method and Approach
1.2 Method and Approach The Linbro Park UDF is the preparation of a plan for the future redevelopment of Linbro Park.
The development of this plan includes co-ordination and participation with the Linbro Park Community Association’s Task Team, Linbro Park residents, CoJ engineers, planning departments, private property developers and other specialist consultants to resolve and prepare the framework plan, with explanatory graphics, as a manual for directing future development of Linbro.
The methodology undertaken by the design team comprised of the following 3 phases over a 12 month timeframe.
The first phase was to establish the current realities of the area. This involved the collection and examination of all relevant documentation to develop an understanding of the key problems and issues currently facing Linbro.
The second phase established a set of performance qualities and development principles on which the concept design was based and discussed. The purpose is to understand what is needed for the area to develop – with specific focus on movement, land use, environmental and spatial considerations.
The third phase is the application of spatial development principles and how they are specifically applied to Linbro to establish an urban design framework and vision.
The purpose of the Linbro Park UDF is to guide future specific projects and programmes. The implementation of the proposals will ultimately depend on the effective management and commitment from public and private sector leaders.
The completion of a UDF is less important than the creation of a robust and flexible development plan. For this reason, the Linbro Park UDF should be continually monitored and reviewed to assess its performance.
