To inform the development of a new planning scheme, RPS worked in close partnership with Townsville City Council to deliver a vision for the Aitkenvale Local Area Plan.
Baseline assessments were undertaken to establish constraints mapping with the RPS economics team providing historical/demographic profiling of the suburb. Key deliverables included:
Preferred locations for residential densification
Streetscape and pedestrian network improvement
A potential ‘park and ride’ facility
Rationalisation of the open space system, and
Road permeability network options.
