Sustainability framework for transit oriented development in South East Queensland
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is currently being advocated as an effective land use planning strategy to manage metropolitan growth in South East Queensland (SEQ). Recently, the Regional Plan for South East Queensland has proposed to develop a series of TODs in the region as a way to manage its rapid growth (OUM, 2004, 2005a).
In view of the current developments that are taking place in SEQ, this paper sets out to:
1) discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the TOD concept;
2) examine the merits of the idea of TOD being proposed for SEQ;
3) highlight some planning issues associated with TOD development in SEQ; and
4) propose a holistic conceptual framework to integrate key planning and urban design principles related to the implementation of sustainable TOD in SEQ.
