    • Enhance the viability and vitality of Blackheath through better functioning streets and
    • public spaces
    • Reinforce & enrich the town’s identity & character through detailing of the public
    • domain
    • Demonstrate a high quality of urban design that is robust, functional, cost effective &
    • long lived
    • Improve & develop ongoing partnerships with the local community through
    • consultation

    The Preconditions for Masterplanning are:

    1. Expected to have a life of 15-20 years;
    2. Applies to the public domain only (roads and footpaths)
    3. There is no additional funding identified;
    4. Changes will be designed to be incremental - therefore achievable in stages over the life of the Masterplan;
    5. Improvements in town centre functioning and management of risk are to be prioritised;
    6. Public Domain improvements will be integrated with infrastructure renewal.

    Follow the steps from 1-6 to get most value out of the Masterplanning Analysis stage.
  • Step 2: TRAFFIC & PARKING DATA

    about 3 years ago

    Management of traffic circulation and parking can shape streetscape potential. Understanding how traffic circulates and why parking in particular places is under pressure can lead to improved management with better outcomes all round - and allow development of pedestrian spaces. The tables in this section will help to inform a range of issues.

    You can view the traffic and parking data documents in the Library.

    The streetscape section of this stage of Masterplanning provides some analysis of the existing conditions and infrastructure and presents a series of "precedent pictures". The images are not meant to be taken as literal translations of what Blackheath could be, but contain ideas which may have some application to the town. Look at the analysis posters and add anything you don't agree with or you think is missing to the map in Step 4.

    You can view the related documents in the Library.
