  • 1 OUR NEW PROTOCOL▸ http://www.urbandesign.gov.au/▸ It is concerned with the arrangement, appearance and function of our suburbs, towns and cities.▸ It is both a process and an outcome of creating localities in which people live, engage with each other, and the physical place around them.▸ It involves many different disciplines.▸ It operates from the macro to the micro scale.▸ It influences economics, the physical scale and the social and cultural nature of a locality▸ It is a long-term process that continues to evolve over time.

The hierarchy of form Wellard – Perth, WA Urban Initiatives 2003 http://www.thevillageatwellard.com.au/Wellard.aspx
  • SENSE OF PLACE “Urban design is not just about physical form, but lived experience as well. It has a social and psychological dimension. At its best, urban design is about feeling at home in the world: creating a sense of continuity and authenticity.” (Buchanan, 2009) Valley Fiesta - Brisbane http://www.mapcreative.com.au/images/portfolio/valley-fiesta-2007.gif

  • STATION LOCATION▸ http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2012/04/data- driven-case-walkability/1757/▸ Living car-free in walkable areas fits younger lifestyles. Fewer young people want cars. In 1995 people age 21 to 30 drove 21 percent of all miles driven in the U.S.; in 2009 it was 14 percent, despite consistent growth of the age group. [Advertising Age, 2010]▸ If one in ten Massachusetts adults started a regular walking program, the state would save $121 million in heart disease expenditures annually. [MA Dept. of Public Health, 2008]▸ Exercise affects learning, memory and cognition. College students showed improved performance on recognition memory tasks after exercise. [NYU current research]▸ A one-point increase in Walk Score is associated with between a $700 and $3,000 increase in home values.

  • AUSTRALIA?▸ The Australian May 05, 2012 12:00AM▸ “A pall over the mall”▸ “Shopping malls may be booming across China and parts of the Middle East but in the US, the birthplace of the mall, theyre dying and in Australia theyre haemorrhaging”
  • STATION LOCATION▸ The Australian June 15, 2011 12:00AM▸ Some are saying the end is nigh for the traditional shopping mall retail model.▸ Online retailing is making its mark▸ Typical anchor tenants such as fashion stores and book shops are struggling.▸ "The retailers that are most at risk are in the shopping strips that arent somewhere like Toorak Road or Bridge Road in Melbourne, where theres upmarket coffee shops and lifestyle options to attract people to the area." Victoria Ave, Chatswood, Sydney, NSW, AUS

  • THE POLICE AND THEIR PUBLIC▸ Public Services depend on a trusting cooperative public for their success.▸ This is true of policing - perhaps particularly true.▸ Public attitudes towards the police are complex. While the police remain one of the most trusted of public services, they cannot afford to be complacent. Surrey Hills Library, Crown Street, Surrey Hills, NSW, AUS
  • VISION OF THE QLD POLICE SERVICE▸ „We are determined to be a professional police service,▸ dedicated to excellence and committed to working in partnership with the people of Queensland▸ to enhance the safety and security of our community.” Stafford Police Station, Brisbane, QLD, AUS
  • THE POLICE AND THEIR PUBLIC▸ In the UK trust in the police has fallen in recent years across all age groups and all classes.▸ People will trust the police and work with them in the way the police need, only if they are seen to be fair and accountable, to listen and respond to people, and learn from their mistakes.▸ The public place a particular value on a police service that is „personable‟ – they expect the police to be sensitive, adaptable, and efficient in their dealings with the public. Parap Markets, Parap, Darwin, NT, AUS
  • THE POLICE AND THEIR PUBLIC▸ But the police don‟t only need to work to promote trust and co-operation, they also need to ensure that the public feel safe and reassured▸ Here too, the way the police interact with the public is crucial▸ It is now widely agreed that promoting a visible public presence on the part of the police reduces fear of crime and feelings of insecurity Queen Street Mall - Brisbane QLD, AUS
  • THE POLICE AND THEIR PUBLIC▸ Are the government and the police are continually strengthening relations between the police and the people they are meant to serve?▸ Is the contribution that the police facilities could make to improving police–public relations and promoting reassurance properly recognised? Australia St, Newtown, Sydney, NSW, AUS

  • THE ROLE OF THE POLICE STATION▸ In the UK it is estimated that one in three people visit a police station every year.▸ Well designed, public minded police stations can enhance the image of the police among victims and public.▸ It can also decrease feelings of vulnerability among the public at large. Albury Police Station - Albury, NSW, AUS
  • THE ROLE OF THE POLICE STATION▸ The familiar town centre police station was designed to make the police force both visible and legible.▸ It was an effective symbol of security and public order.▸ The police have largely failed to build on this legacy.▸ This lack of concern with the urban design and management of the police facilities is reflected in the public experience of many police stations which are often intimidating, or alienating places to visit. Police Precinct - Beechworth, VIC, AUS
  • WHAT THE UK PUBLIC SAY...▸ http://www.police- foundation.org.uk/files/POLICE0001/reports/Reportsbyotherorgs/reinvent ing_police_station.pdf▸ „It‟s just a cop shop. Their business is to bang people up. You don‟t go there unless you have to.‟▸ „I think they‟ve designed it on purpose to be as impersonal as possible. It‟s not a friendly place.‟▸ „The community aspect is way down their list of priorities, I would imagine.‟▸ „A lot of police stations are intimidating.‟▸ „I felt like I was being punished as well.‟▸ „It‟s just a place really. Who wants to have lunch outside a police station? It‟s not the kind of place you want to go and sit down, is it? I definitely wouldn‟t. I walk past it as fast as I can.‟ Holland Park Police Station, Bne, QLD, AUS
  • UK PRESS▸ http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2002/apr/03/urbandesign.arts▸ The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE), has written to the chief constable of Greater Manchester, David Wilmot, detailing its concerns about the project.▸ "The overall level of design is disappointing in terms of their civic contribution.”▸ It claims that proposed designs of blank walls on to the streets contradict "secure by design" principles, which the police promote as a way of encouraging informal super vision of streets and engendering a sense of safety.▸ "A police station needs to be a recognisable symbol... to convey a sense of being part of the community. These buildings are not obviously police stations; at first sight, one or two could be mistaken for leisure centres." Carseldine Police Station, Brisbane, QLD, AUS
  • THE ROLE OF THE POLICE STATION▸ Virtually none provide space for public meetings or exhibitions and very few make the most of the admittedly limited aspects to them which might appeal to the public.▸ The traditional police station is increasingly out of date – many have closed.▸ A wide range of factors bear on the future of the facilities.▸ Some of these – new security threats, growth of police specialisation, culture, security, maintenance – pose a challenges with design solutions.▸ Others, like a greater focus on community support, improved image, attract staff offer new opportunities. Orion Springfield Town Centre - Springfield, QLD, AUS
  • THE ROLE OF THE POLICE STATION▸ Police buildings will continue to play an important role in effecting public confidence in the police▸ Great care needs to be given to the design and management of all police buildings Hastings St, Noosa -Sunshine Coast, QLD, AUS
  • STRENGTHENING RELATIONS▸ There needs to be something close to a revolution in the way the police and the Government approach police buildings▸ They have to become much more sensitive to the contribution their facilities can make to strengthening relations between the police and citizens, and reassuring the public.
  • RESPONDING TO POLICY CHANGES▸ http://www.urbandesign.gov.au/▸ National Urban Design Protocol▸ draft Urban Design Framework in QLD▸ Public Sector training (DLGP,DTMR, Health, Arts, ULDA, DPW, etc)▸ Outcomes... Reduces government expenditure Hibberson St, Gungahlin, Canberra, ACT, AUS
  • CRIME PREVENTION▸ The CPTED guidelines considers design and use▸ Identifies which aspects of the physical environment affect the behaviour of people.▸ Uses these factors to allow for the most productive use of space while reducing the opportunity of crime.▸ This might include changes to poor environmental design such as street lighting and landscaping. Portside Markets, Hercules Street, Brisbane, Queensland, AUS
