Water Sensitive Urban Design: Maximising Potential

Planit can maximise the development potential of projects, whilst meeting planning requirements for water-sensitive urban design.

The key principles of water-sensitive urban design are to:

  • protect and enhance natural water systems within urban developments;
  • integrate stormwater treatment into the landscape;
  • improve the quality of water draining from urban developments into the receiving environment; and
  • add value, while minimising development costs.

Planit’s water-sensitive urban design services include:

  • Stormwater management
  • Catchment management
  • Creek erosion and treatment
  • Sediment and erosion control
