Growing Up: Planning for Children in New Vertical Communities produced draft guidelines to direct how new development can better function for larger households at three scales: the unit, the building and the neighbourhood. The objective is that developments deliver tangible outcomes to increase liveability for larger households at each scale.
Phase 1 focused on background research including a series of local and international case studies, population and market analysis.
Phase 2 work involved drafting and testing of the draft guidelines. Development of the guidelines followed an iterative process, incorporating feedback from staff, the public and stakeholders. Both phases of the Study included a diverse range of consultation activities.
