- The boundary treatment balances appropriate views into any adjacent public realm, while maintaining privacy for building occupant
- There is a defined edge between public, communal and private open space
- There are defined transitions between areas within the development that have different functions or owners
Front boundary elements such as fences and walls generally separate privately owned land from the public realm, often streets.
Boundary treatment considers those elements which delineate the site boundary or which serve to differentiate between public, communal and private spaces.
This includes planting, fences, screening devices and/ or changes in level.
