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

Accordingto Brisbane City Council, it guides how land in Brisbane can be usedand developed. It’s also a design that helps them plan forinfrastructure to support growth and create a more diversified economywhile 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

Justlike in any flow of nature, everything has a purpose and function. Inbuilding or maintaining a whole town, it is a must that everythingfollows a specific plan that will ensure the safety and smooth flow oflife within a community not only for subdivisions in Brisbane but alsofor the other community that aims to have accessible and peacefulenvironment.

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

Itinvolves the proper allocation of houses, plotting of roads, theinstallation of electrical and phone lines among many other things thatare 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.

Certainfactors needs to be addressed such as demographics and amount of thepopulation that is expected to reside in the town as well as theavailability of lands. Its accessibility to people and to their everydayneeds such as a grocery, church, schools and even hospitals can play abig factor in creating this kind of project.

Weall want to have convenient access to our necessities such as food,clean water, electricity and even to leisure or entertainment centreswhich are major concerns when it comes to town planning. Planning anentire town involves crucial selection and the establishment of acomplete setting that is available for people and even their pets tolive in and build a healthy community.

Italso requires preparations to handle site expansion in case the needfor a bigger town arises and also preparation for disasters such asflooding and earthquakes. Building housing and commercial establishmentswith strong materials and putting sufficient draining pipes are some ofthe 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.
