Strategies, plans and guidelines – Introduction

The case studies in this section focus on the processes required to develop urban design strategies, plans and guidelines in a local government context. They demonstrate how several councils have developed or reviewed strategies and policies to embed urban design into their everyday practice.

This section provides information on how local government has:

  • changed subdivision codes of practice

  • developed non-statutory mixed use town centre guidance

  • created and reviewed statutory design guidance

  • produced a city-wide urban design strategy

  • organised a sub-regional urban development strategy.
