Beyond that though, Masterplanning serves an integral part of the site redevelopment and statutory application process. Developed with heavy input from the architect or designer, the masterplan provides necessary information to understand the site development aims, considerations, and objectives. This information is then used in discussions with planning authorities, local councils, and members of planning committees and as presentations to the general public for their consideration and feedback.
A masterplan highlights:
- The boundaries and specifications of site location
- How the built forms will sit within the space
- Design concepts for the site as a whole
Masterplans vary in length and content depending on the type and scale of the development, but they all serve a common purpose: to provide clarity, understanding, and confidence in a site development.
