Town Planning Drawings

Town planning drawings are an essential part of the architectural design process, as they provide a detailed plan of how a proposed development will be integrated into the surrounding area. These drawings are used by architects, planners, and other professionals involved in the planning and construction process to ensure that the development meets all regulatory requirements and is appropriate for the intended location.

In Australia, town planning drawings are typically created in accordance with local planning regulations, as well as national standards set by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB). These standards cover a wide range of topics, including building height and setback requirements, access and parking provisions, and environmental considerations such as water management, waste disposal and more.

Common town planning drawings include site plans, floor plans, elevations, garden area plan, shadow analysis and material/colour selection etc. Site plans show the location of the proposed development in relation to surrounding streets, buildings, and other features, and may include details such as building setbacks, parking areas, and landscaping. Floor plans provide a detailed layout of the interior spaces of the proposed development, while elevations show the building’s appearance from different angles. Sections provide a cross-sectional view of the building, showing details such as floor-to-ceiling heights and roof profiles.

In addition to these standard drawings, town planning documents may also include detailed reports and assessments, such as traffic impact/management reports, environmental impact assessments and heritage impact statements. These documents are typically required by local planning authorities as part of the development approval process.
