Ensure there is adequate local demand for proposed onsite activities
When planning a mixed use development it is important to assess local demand for the proposed onsite activities. Careful analysis should also be undertaken of the wider neighbourhood to ensure occupants have access to services and facilities. These may include:
- shops, banks and grocery outlets
- public transport
- schools and healthcare facilities
- outdoor space / recreation areas
- off-street and on-street parking.
Town centres generally provide these facilities, as well as adequate foot traffic for potential retail and commercial activities.
