Street spaces

Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, suggests that: ‘Street spaces are that part of the street used for social purposes such as a wide footpath or a pedestrian-only mall. 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.’
