Communal open space

Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 suggests that communal open space refers to: ‘An area within a private site providing for informal recreation activities for common use by building occupants and, in some cases, visitors. It is distinct from private open space. Some communal open spaces can be accessible to the public (such as that associated with a library or hospital) while other spaces can be accessible to customers only (such as the courtyard of a restaurant or café).’
