Importance of Town Planning for Sustainable Development

Lee Morrison - Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Early this year, Lord Mayor Graham Quirk introduced Brisbane's Draft new City Plan.

According to Brisbane City Council, it guides how land in Brisbane can be used and developed. It’s also a design that helps them plan for infrastructure to support growth and create a more diversified economy while continuing to protect the city’s enviable way of life.  

Now, let’s review the importance of sustainable urban planning and how we can benefit from it today and in the future.

Town Planning and Sustainability

Just like in any flow of nature, everything has a purpose and function. In building or maintaining a whole town, it is a must that everything follows a specific plan that will ensure the safety and smooth flow of life within a community not only for subdivisions in Brisbane but also for the other community that aims to have accessible and peaceful environment.

It starts with the planning and designing of the whole town structure even before performing any construction on a given land.

It involves the proper allocation of houses, plotting of roads, the installation of electrical and phone lines among many other things that are constant variables in an active community.

Elements of Sustainable Town Planning

Town planning is a strenuous tasks that takes a whole effort to materialize. Acquiring a group of skilled town planners is very essential in this kind of project.

You need to compose a whole team that has experience, especially with geography and logistics.

Certain factors needs to be addressed such as demographics and amount of the population that is expected to reside in the town as well as the availability of lands. Its accessibility to people and to their everyday needs such as a grocery, church, schools and even hospitals can play a big factor in creating this kind of project.

We all want to have convenient access to our necessities such as food, clean water, electricity and even to leisure or entertainment centres which are major concerns when it comes to town planning. Planning an entire town involves crucial selection and the establishment of a complete setting that is available for people and even their pets to live in and build a healthy community.

It also requires preparations to handle site expansion in case the need for a bigger town arises and also preparation for disasters such as flooding and earthquakes. Building housing and commercial establishments with strong materials and putting sufficient draining pipes are some of the ways to prevent major damages from natural disasters.

A well-coordinated plan can ensure the smooth flow of a project that will last for a long time.
