Quality developments – Introduction

The development case studies in this section cover a range of scales, activities and locations across New Zealand. They have been chosen because they demonstrate the practical application of the ‘seven Cs’ as outlined in the New Zealand Urban Design Protocol: context, character, choice, collaboration, connections, custodianship and creativity.

The case studies here look at large-scale neighbourhood or master planned projects that:

  • revitalise inner city areas

  • undertake community renewal

  • create a mixture of uses next to a heritage area

  • create a master planned community.
