The NSW Government is seeking feedback on the draft Medium Density Design Guide. The Design Guide is intended to assist in achieving better design and planning outcomes for low-rise, medium-density housing. It provides guidance and criteria for designing and assessing these developments.
The Design Guide has been prepared to:
- assist developers, planners, urban designers, architects, building designers, landscape architects, and other professionals when designing medium density dwellings and preparing a complying development or development proposal.
- assist planning professionals in local and state government with strategic planning, preparing local controls and assessing development proposals.
- inform the community of what is required to achieve good design and planning practice for medium density residential dwellings.
