Commercial Buildings

Extension of Public Areas

New development should extend the public realm through the creation of small public places and lanes.







Traditional human scaled shop fronts should be used. Dead frontage must be avoided. Canopies, colonnades or verandas should protect shop fronts.





Upper Floors

Balconies and verandas should be included on upper levels.


Signage on new buildings should be integrated into the building design. Signage may not obscure architectural features.

Guidelines No internally illuminated signs. See Appendix 1.
