Venus Bay Urban Design Framework
An Urban Design Framework is a strategic planning document, prepared with input from the local community that presents a vision and future-planning framework for the development of a town. The process should produce both a framework articulating how the town will develop, and the actions needed to realise that framework.
Venus Bay was created from a donation of land by a local farmer, and established in three parts known as the first, second and third estates. The estates are situated between a sand dune and Anderson Inlet and separated by rural farm land and wetland/ salt marsh vegetation.
The key character elements of the town including its landscape setting and built form collectively creates a small hamlet, which integrates with the surrounding coastal environment.
