12.10 Universal Design

Street design must be inclusive and provide for all, regardless of age, size, disability or ability.  Streets and footpaths should be designed in accordance with the principles of Universal Design, as set out in Building for Everyone: A Universal Design Approach, External Environment and Approach[1].  The Council will ensure as far as feasible that areas are accessible to the broadest range of users, based on the principles of Universal Design.  (See Section 13.3 Universal Design). The Design Manual for Urban roads and Streets (DMURS) is also designed to respond to the principles of universal design. 

Development Management Requirements:

  • In the assessment of proposals where public realm works are involved whether public or private the Council will require such works to adhere to Universal design standard for public realm.
