IPWEA-QNT’s Street Design Manual: Walkable Neighbourhoods is a contemporary guide for the planning and detailed design of Queensland’s residential neighbourhoods.

Developed for industry by industry, the Manual recognises the role of streets as important connectors to multi-purpose social spaces in our neighbourhoods. It emphasises active transport’s role in delivering a sense of community and healthier lifestyles.

By complementing the Queensland Government’s model code for neighbourhood design, recent amendments to the planning regulations and other policy initiatives, the Manual provides a more coordinated approach to neighbourhood planning and design than in earlier guidelines. It also includes appropriate guidelines applicable to the higher residential densities than applied when earlier manuals were developed.

Although focused on greenfield development, the principles, objectives and strategies in the document are applicable to the redevelopment of existing streets.
