Given the rapidly growing interest in place making and the key role of local councils in this process, the MAV has joined with Steven Burgess, one of Australasia’s most renowned transport engineers to run this masterclass: Street Design – Making Great and Sustainable Places. We will explore key elements of street design and recognise their importance in making great and sustainable places.
The masterclass will help bring engineers and urban planners closer together on the issues surrounding street design. Attendees will go through the evolution of streets within an urban design and place making integration context. This will lead to a discussion about land use planning including the use of planning schemes. After lunch, the session will explore the significance of road safety and how the safe system frameworks is utilised. Parking and how it plays a significant role in the development – or lack thereof – of a vibrant community will also be discussed.
