PHASING

Possible short term scenario adaptations could involve joining ofthefencedareasofneighbouringcommunities,andintroducing passageways through currently closed compounds (these could be closed off at night if needed for the security reasons) or minor changes to the extents of currently managed areas to allow further neighbouring development.8 Moreover, any decisions regarding potentialfuturephysicaladaptations(beitpathwaysorconnection creating links between the neighbouring structures) need to be carefully planned and analysed. Those decisions should benefit residentsaffected,thecommunityasawholeandthefunctionality of the future townscape. A balance needs to be found.

In the majority of cases, however, there is no immediate need for changes within existing boundaries of the managed communities.ThenotablefutureadaptationsarisingfromtheDDP density layout (like densification of a currently developed LDU’s) will be needed only upon reaching population thresholds and, taking into consideration the current growth rate, it is a far distant scenario, most likely converging with the lifespan of currently built structures. At the same time, if a community is located in an area designatedforpredominantlygreenuse(insidethegreenzone)any densification is a move in a wrong direction.

Detailed Development Plan 2016 - Residential Zone Sectors 1 & 2

General strategy regarding the phasing and the application of the particular elements of the plan is currently in progress as part of DDP Annex. However, in case of the potential future adaptations of the current functionality of particular communities a further involvement of an architect representing the community and a thorough understanding of sector-scale strategy will be required.
