These guidelines direct the desired character and experiential qualities of civic spaces and parks as places that are distinctive, engaging, comfortable, adaptive to changing user needs, connect people to living systems, and provide authentic connections to the past. The guidelines include details about the types and functions, and guiding plans and attributes of civic space and park typologies in Mill Central and Mill Green.
These guidelines direct the character and experiential qualities of streetscapes as places for people, movement, active transport and activity. The guidelines include details about the types and functions, guiding plans and cross sections of streetscape typologies and at-grade car parks in Mill Central and Mill Green.
