6Public access

Design Outcome

Streets provide public movement and access throughout a subdivision

​​​​​​Irrespective of ownership, streets should be thought of as the public domain, where people can meet, congregate, move and linger​​​.

Better Design Practice

  • All streets should have public access rights, even when privately owned. 
  • The standard of street design and performance should be the same whether the street is planned for future public or private ownership.
