Selecting the best location for pedestrian, car and cycle access into the site is an important site planning decision.
Pedestrian and vehicle access may need to be separated depending on the site, scale and type of apartment development; however pedestrian access should always be safe and pleasant for residents and visitors.
Sometimes the optimal location for site access points is obvious. At other times the advantages and disadvantages of possible locations will need to be carefully weighed up. Enhancing the development should be a primary consideration when choosing the access or egress points for the development.
