Southern River Structure Plan

Structure Plan design and documentation to establish
development parameters and pre-empt a Development
Plan for Precinct 3 in the Southern River locality.
The planning required scrutiny and critique of the
DEC’s Wetland Vegetation Guidance to substantiate
integrated urban form in a highly constrained urban
fringe locality. The key to the success of this project was
the detailed analysis of the wetland vegetation
complexes, hydritic soils and hydrogeology to inform a
Structure Plan design that promoted protection of a
viable vegetation wetland through application of a
stormwater treatment train within the urban stormwater
management.

By integrating extensive knowledge of geomorphology
and planning design, urbanplan presents a unique
combination of skills as demonstrated in the Southern
River Precinct 3E ODP where site development was
optimised by reducing an 80% Wetland constraint to a
10% constraint.
