2.3.12 Guiding Principles for Strategic Development and Regeneration Areas

The plan designates 18 strategic development and regeneration areas (SDRAs), see Table E, in addition to the inner city. These represent significant areas of the inner and outer city with substantial development capacity and the potential to deliver the residential, employment and recreational needs of the city.

For each of these 18 SDRAs, guiding principles are provided, setting out how to optimise on the potential, the city role and the character of each area.

Key objectives that must be achieved are set out on issues such as: mix of uses; street network and linkages within the area and to surrounding areas; provision of urban spaces, parks and playgrounds; and provision of retail and recreational facilities.
