HRA PLANNING employs Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to provide spatial evidence to inform and influence development projects and to bring added value to our specialist Town Planning outputs.
The interrogation and display of spatial intelligent data can identify locational opportunities and constraints, and, can support locational, development planning decisions.
By overlapping data layers comprising different spatial and socio-economic information, we can identity specific locations, spatial patterns and clusters of interest and activity, which in turn can inform locational (and investment) choices, and, improve decision making with quantitative data and corresponding map visualisation.
Whilst not limited to this, frequently employed spatial analysis by HRA PLANNING includes:
- Plotting the physical relationship between environmental designations, amenity areas and zoning objectives to inform developable areas site-specific design;
- Mapping multiple features of physical and social infrastructure including public transit to determine quality and quantity and sufficiency to support new development;
- Analysing population demographics and housing tenure diversification at the lowest level to determine housing development objectives at a city, town and neighbourhood level for development plans;
- Assessing quantum and availability of amenity space and distance from residential areas – to inform future development plan objectives;
- Walk-time and drive-time analysis from a defined location to determine population catchment, proximity and expenditure for commercial projects;
