The public transport corridor bordering the study site runs NW to SE and is perceived as a source of noise and pollution. The key urban planning strategies adopted by this team were:
• Acoustic separation from transport corridor noise source,
• A regular grid pattern of urban blocks, and
• A clear hierarchy of accessible open space throughout the development.
