Clermont Urban Design Framework
The Clermont Urban Design Framework was the first framework to be completed. It set the standard for all future frameworks in the Isaac Region. The aim of the project was to develop an Urban Design Framework (UDF) for Clermont that helps the Community focus on a strategic future for the town by increasing tourism and economic development, attracting new residents and improving the quality of life for the local community. This framework ultimately provides a vision and urban design direction for Clermont for the next 10-20 years.
An intensive consultative approach was key to developing a strong understanding of community needs and aspirations, a crucial understanding to develop sustainable projects for the Clermont community.
