A Masterplan is a document that provides a guide to future growth and development. It could involve either a strategic masterplan or a project specific masterplan. Basic principles are common to the process of establishing a Masterplan.
Economic, Social and Environmental factors are typically the key drivers for change. This could range from wishing to attract investment through to the desire to improve, rehabilitate and regenerate a parcel of land.
Whatever the desire, carefully planned stakeholder engagement and a comprehensive consultation process is an important step in the production of a Masterplan. Without proper planning and consultation a Masterplan is likely to fail due to the changes not being well recieved in the community.
The purpose of the masterplanning process is to encourage creative thinking and define a roadmap that acheives a defined set of outcomes.
With regard to residential subdivision development there are a number of critical components that should be considered if the development is to acheive a sustainable outcome.
These are correct lot orientation and retention and protection of significant vegetation in combination with consideration of the topography and natural elements of the site.
These components can significantly impact the ‘flow on’ effects of impacts on the environment and getting them correct at the initial stages of a project will ensure a successful outcome at the end.
Citicene have been involved in numerous Masterplanning activities and have delivered a range of masterplans from Species Masterplans to Residential Site Masterplans.
