- Urban: 650m via safe pedestrian routes. This should be measured via the route and not ‘as the crow flies’ from the main entrance of the home (communal entrance of the building for an apartment block) to the amenity.
- Rural: 1300m via safe pedestrian routes. This should be measured via the route and not ‘as the crow flies’ from the main entrance of the home (communal entrance of the building for an apartment block) to the amenity.
Where safe pedestrian routes take into account the physical limitations of those who may use them, for example providing steps appropriately supported by sloped access and dropped curbs positioned at crossing points. These routes and associated spaces are appropriately sized, with good visibility of the route ahead.
