4 Click to edit Master title style (30 pts) Alice Springs CBD Review The Review Area The Town Centre has traditionally been defined as the area shown. Should other areas be considered? Should some areas shown not be considered?

5 Click to edit Master title style (30 pts) Alice Springs CBD Review Structural Changes in the Alice Springs CBD What places in the CBD can provide guidance about appropriate built form and design parameters for future development?

6 Click to edit Master title style (30 pts) Alice Springs CBD Review Quality Design Outcomes Building height should not be viewed in isolation of other aspects of building design. Roofs are highly visible from lookouts; roof gardens or terraces may be options to soften the visual impact of roofs. What issues need to be considered in roof gardens? What should the minimum building setback be for new 5 and 8 storey buildings? What issues are associated with activating the street as part of new buildings?

7 Click to edit Master title style (30 pts) Alice Springs CBD Review Building Heights Options canvassed in the Discussion Paper suggest building heights between 5 – 8 storeys in certain CBD locations What should the maximum height limit be in Alice CBD? What should be the height of new buildings adjacent to heritage places? What conditions could be applied to increased height limits?

Are there other key views or vistas not addressed? Are views of the Todd River from street level as important as views of hills from lookouts?
