Following on from our work on the Five Dock Town Centre Urban Design Study, Studio GL were engaged to upgrade the development controls for the City of Canada Bay including an update of controls for the Mixed Use Areas and Neighbourhood Centres and preparation of revised development controls for the Five Dock Town Centre.
As part of this work we have undertaken site testing and detailed overshadowing modelling to identify the impact an increase in different FSRs would have on the character of the centre, and assessed different options for built form with regard to scale, number of storeys and street wall heights. We also prepared a fact sheet to help explain floor space ratio controls (FSR) to the community. Following exhibition of the DCP we have assisted Council in the review of community feedback generated by the public exhibition and created photomontage views to explain the impact of different height controls.
