5.3.6.1.3.1 Streetscape types overview

(1) The Locality Streets in the Fortitude Valley Neighbourhood Plan area are divided into different streetscape types that are exceptions to the standard streetscape hierarchy.

(3) The streetscape type, layout and paving materials for each streetscape type in the Fortitude Valley Neighbourhood Plan area are outlined in Table 5.3.6.1.3.2A and shown on Figure 5.3.6.1.1a.
