MODELING AND TESTING PROPOSED ZONING
Existing development patterns result from a complex system of influencing elements. Changes to the regulations and fee structures must be undertaken with great care and should always be modelled before implementation in order to ensure that the proposed wording triggers the desired results.
In the context of this work, modelling must include;
3D modelling of typical streets,
modelling of the impact of revised regulations on multiple real example sites, drawn in site plan and 3D (impacts cannot be gauged in the abstract as the 'devil is in the details' and real life site conditions are significant),
modelling of economic impacts on business models.
