Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by The State of Victoria Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning in 2017, suggest that a plaza is: ‘A type of public open space connected to the street network that can range in size from a building forecourt to a large city square. A plaza may be a wide mid-block pedestrian link, bordered by buildings or attached to a public building such as a town hall, school, or entertainment and sports facility.’
It suggests that: 'Plazas range from a building forecourt to a large city square. A plaza is often bordered by buildings or streets. Most street spaces and plazas are paved, and can include trees and other planting, but they are distinguished from parks. The spaces may have vehicles running adjacent to the pedestrian zone, be a shared zone, or may be free of vehicles.'
