02 AIMS + OBJECTIVES
The UDF for Linbro Park aims, with contributions from the City of Joburg, landowners, developers and other specialist studies, to determine how development in the area could take place in a manner, which is sustainable, offers a unique living environment, enhances and builds on the area’s advantages, addresses its weaknesses, and maximises benefits to the landowners, future users and to the city as a whole.
The objectives of the Linbro Park UDF are to;
Create a coherent, holistic vision, with easily understood principles which can guide development.
Provide a clearly defined urban model, which allows no grey areas of uncertainty.
Establish a clear understanding of what the public environment looks like and how that can be translated into a sense of identity for development.
Create a unique space, within an environment where a large variety of people will meet, network and prosper.
Form an environment that is safe, secure, distinct and memorable for both residents and visitors alike.
Establish appropriate linkages to the greater region around the development.
Establish a legible and integrated street network.
Produce an environment that promotes ease of movement and access for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
Explore development flexibility: ensuring a structure that can respond to changing market requirements.
Establish a framework which identifies lead projects and phasing methods and suggests an implementation strategy to assist the landowners in managing change.
Provide a practical and easily understood framework document, that can act as a development tool for the project.
