Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017 suggests that pedestrian shed (ped shed) is: ‘A graphic representation of the area surrounding a particular destination that can be reached on foot within a specific walking time. Its extent is related to walking distances to the destination, as opposed to a simple radius from a centre point. It can be expressed as walking time (10 minutes at average walk speed), or as a distance (800m).’
