PDA reins lead vi­sion for our city

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

DE­SIGN guide­lines for the Townsville City Water­front Pri­or­ity Devel­op­ment Area, which is al­ready be­gin­ning to trans­form the city, have been of­fi­cially en­acted.

The guide­lines, which are now in place, pro­vide clar­ity for the types of build­ing and de­sign stan­dards that may be used in fu­ture devel­op­ments through­out the PDA, in­clud­ing pub­lic spa­ces.

Townsville Act­ing Mayor Les Walker said the PDA guide­lines aligned with the coun­cil’s Townsville 2020 vi­sion, which aimed to pro­vide world-class ex­pe­ri­ences for lo­cals and vis­i­tors while en­hanc­ing the unique North Queens­land life­style.

“Townsville 2020 was im­ple­mented to pro­vide a clear vi­sion for our city; these guide­lines will en­sure we at­tract devel­op­ments that are suited for the Pri­or­ity Devel­op­ment Area,” he said.

“The PDA will en­cour­age devel­op­ment along the Ross Creek and pro­vides res­i­dents and busi­nesses with cer­tainty.”

The guide­lines were adopted at a full coun­cil meet­ing on Novem­ber 27 last year.
