Streets and pathways are the building blocks of every residential neighbourhood. Along with our built environment, well-planned streets and neighbourhoods influence how people move and interact, access parks and open space, walk and cycle for leisure, recreation, exercise and transport.
IPWEA-QNT’s Street Design Manual: Walkable Neighbourhoods (the Manual) is a contemporary guide for the design and development of Queensland’s residential neighbourhoods. Developed for industry by industry, the Manual recognises streets as an essential connector to multi-purpose social spaces in our neighbourhoods. It offers access options for active transport delivering safer neighbourhoods and a sense of community.
This program will provide a detailed understanding of all aspects of quality contemporary residential land development that promotes healthy and safe communities and provide a more coordinated approach to neighbourhood planning and design for councils, developers and the community.
