Masterplanning, transportation and infrastructure

The Urban Task Force in the UK, headed by Lord Richard Rogers, stated that a successful masterplan must be:

visionary – should raise aspirations and provide a vehicle for • consensus building and implementation; deliverable – should take into account likely implementation • and delivery routes; fully integrated into the land use planning system, while allow-• ing new uses and market opportunities to exploit the full development potential of a site; flexible, providing the basis for negotiation and dispute • resolution; the result of a participatory process, providing all the stake-• holders with the means of expressing their needs and priorities; equally applicable to rethinking the role, function and form • of existing neighbourhoods as to creating new neighbourhoods.
