1.4.5 Key Development Site Design Guidance
220.127.116.11 How to use the Design Guide
18.104.22.168 Key Development Site 1 – Cobham Drive
vi. Provide for car parking away from the street (e.g. internal, above ground or below ground). Note
Landowners/applicants of the key development site and Council are encouraged to liaise together, to work towards a common vision for the key development site (led by the landowner/applicants) and the adjoining public realm (along Clarence Street, led by Council), to achieve the Key Design Principles outlined above.

126.96.36.199 Key Development Site 3 – Victoria on the River
ii. Located on Victoria Street, within the restaurant and cafe hub of the city. iv. Potential to contribute to the revitalisation of the city centre and, in particular, enhance the relationship with the Waikato River.

188.8.131.52 Key Development Site 4 – Warehouse/Kmart/Transport Centre Site
e) Proposed mix of uses on site
Practice Note: Make full use of development potential, include a mix of uses and focus on the contribution of the building to the public realm.
Practice Note: Provide active frontages to Key Development Site 4 where:
1. The buildings with public road frontage and frontage onto a through site link shall:iii. Provide for a north-south pedestrian through site link between Bryce Street and Ward Street through Key Development Site 4.
• Provide at least 75% of the primary active frontage, and at least 50% of the secondary active frontage or through site link, as clear glazing (or equivalent) at ground floor level.
• Be capable of use for displaying goods and services to passing pedestrians.
• Not have painted, covered or otherwise altered glazed areas so as to render them ineffective in achieving the purpose of this rule.
2. Vehicular access across active frontages shall not use any more than 10% of the defined frontage.
3. The principle public entrance to a building shall be provided from the active frontage.
4. All storage areas should be situated within or to the rear of the buildings.
Practice Note: Enable a legible pedestrian connection and through site link that responds to or enhances pedestrian permeability, between street Ward Street and Bryce Street, taking into consideration the Transport Centre, traffic movements and potential pedestrian crossing points along those streets.
Practice Note: The built form on the corner of Tristram and Ward Streets should reinforce the gateway function through appropriate height, architectural form and detailing.
Practice Note: Maintain vehicle access points for the safe and efficient movement of the public transport vehicles to and from the transport centre.
i. A wide range of activities are appropriate for the site including retail, commercial office, cafes and restaurants, education, car parking buildings, residential apartments and other uses that add to the vitality of city centre.

184.108.40.206 Key Development Site 5 – Countdown Site, Anglesea North
Practice Note: Supermarket activities have the potential to support future residential development on and around the subject site and are therefore encouraged (although not essential), either in their current form, or within an alternative more compact form in the future. ii. Provide for high amenity pedestrian routes around and through the site.
Practice Note: Where practicable, pedestrian routes through the site be provided to increase permeability. These routes should be free of conflict with vehicles, have good CPTED qualities, high landscape amenity, visual interest and be well connected to a wider pedestrian network of desire lines.
Practice Note: The built form of the corner of Anglesea and Liverpool Streets should reinforce the gateway function through appropriate height, architectural form and detailing.
Practice Note: Building frontages, particularly at ground level, should provide for interest through the use of architectural features and textures. Passive surveillance of the street should be provided by active uses and glazing at ground level, pedestrian entry and exit points. Storage and services areas which detract from good building frontage should be placed internal to the site and away from the public street frontage.
i. Retail, commercial office, education, and other uses that add vitality to the city centre.
