Higher density residential precinct
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, suggests that: ‘A higher density residential precinct generally has larger lot sizes that are able to accommodate apartment and mixed-use developments. The precinct may be in or adjacent to an activity centre or within a large development site. The structure of a higher density residential precinct provides a high level of amenity in public spaces, access to facilities and services, while protecting privacy and personal safety.’
