Landscape Institute Technical Information Note TIN 05/2017, Townscape Character Assessment, suggests that ‘legibility’ is: ‘The ability to navigate through or ‘read’ the urban environment. Can be increased through a number of means such as good connectivity, landmarks and wayfaring signage. Within townscape low legibility and the ability to become ‘lost’ can be a positive feature in the right circumstances.’ Ref https://landscapewpstorage01.blob.core.windows.net/www-landscapeinstitute-org/2018/04/tin-05-2017-townscape.pdf
Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 suggests that legibility refers to: ‘The ease with which a person is able to see, understand and find their way around an area, building or development. A 'legible' layout is one that people find easy to navigate and move through.’
