Bradford City Centre Design Guide, Supplementary Planning Document, published in 2006, defines building line as: ‘The primary front face of buildings along a street. Where all of the buildings share a common building line (which can be curved) there is continuous enclosure along the street.’
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, defines building line as: ‘The actual or apparent line created by a building's front wall along a street. A consistent building line in a street can visually unify diverse building types and forms, and can assist new buildings to fit in with the surrounding context. The building line, whether setback or situated on the street edge, is an important aspect of urban character.’
