ESD Urban Design Guidelinesfor Frankston City Council
SJB Urban prepared ESD Guidelines for Urban Design for Frankston City Council. The Guidelines incorporate a range of scales, from regional to local to individual buildings, and a range of ESD considerations, including Urban Structure, Movement/Transport, Open Space/Landscape, Energy, Water and Heritage, with guidance focussing specifically on ESD aspects of these categories.
The project also involves application of the Guidelines through a series of hypothetical design exercises for real locations in Frankston. The document is planned to be applied more broadly in the future, to other Transit Cities and other locations.
To our knowledge, this is the only ESD Guide specifically for Urban Design ever produced.
