The city has appointed Hassell Studio to work with the community and begin precinct planning for the Rokeby Road South area. The outcome of the project will be a Local Development Plan that will guide the city’s consideration of Scheme Amendment No. 35 and inform council’s response on draft Local Planning Scheme No. 5.
The upcoming precinct planning will include an analysis of the streetscape, land uses, building heights and form, local character and laneway use/access.
Local residents, land owners, local businesses and other key stakeholders will be invited to take part in a five-day urban design forum to identify key issues and develop principles and a vision for the area. At the workshops, consultants will work with the participants to develop ideas and concepts and test solutions to the identified issues. Details on an expression of interest process for those wishing to be involved in these workshops will be provided in the coming weeks.
Following this process, the draft Local Development Plan will be formally advertised for comment alongside the draft Rokeby Road South Streetscape Masterplan.
