Detailed Village Development Plan
Location: Perisher, NSW Completed: Currently going through DA
The Detailed Village Design Plan (DVDP) provided the opportunity to test the appropriateness of an extensive range of recommended urban design controls and other stated environmental outcomes set out in an existing Master Plan. Paramount in these considerations was the particular climatic and environmental conditions unique to the area and detailed snow and wind modelling was undertaken on several built form options. The plan achieved some key urban design outcomes including: transparency, legibility with a predominantly pedestrian focus, minimization of snow dump in public areas, respect for and utilisation of key vistas, handicapped accessibility to all areas, a hierarchy of open spaces, a palette of building materials and colours appropriate to its National Park setting. The village centre will provide new accommodation, the major arrival and departure point for skiers and visitors, a new focus for beginner skiing facilities, resort shopping, leisure and recreation facilities. It will provide facilities in both summer and winter.

Four of the seven precincts accommodate mixed-use residential
