Urban design frameworks (UDFs) provide a point of reference for a community to understand and implement a shared vision and are integral to enhancing the functionality, livability, character and spirit of an urban area. The Southern Downs region is renowned for its charming and unique villages and since 2017 Council has been proactively and systematically rolling out the UDF initiative.
Continuing Council’s commitment to making the region a great place to live, work, play and stay, the region’s UDF provides a basis for investing in public works and guidance for how the village should look and feel. Six UDF’s have been completed across the region and villages are embracing and enhancing their unique charms as projects are implemented.
