Using the Manual

The Centres Detail Design Manual deals with design matters including: 

  • footways - the footpath, kerb, planting and street furniture
  • lanes, cross block links, corner land dedications and buildouts
  • public art contributions

The manual is divided into four chapters:

  1. Using the Manual: This chapter sets out who should use the Manual and how to navigate, the document structure and contact details.
  2. Locality Advice: This chapter includes all centres in Brisbane where guidance is available for upgrading footways and locations where public art contributions are needed.
  3. Streetscape Design: Section A details the new Citywide Streetscape Hierarchy. Section B provides guidance on elements and materials for footway upgrades.
  4. Technical Details: This chapter provides additional technical information for the elements and materials outlined in Section B.
