Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, suggests that: ‘Active uses are uses that generate many visits, in particular pedestrian visits, over an extended period of the day. Active uses may be shops, cafes, and other social uses. Higher density residential and office uses also can be active uses for particular periods of the day.’
