Herdsman Glendalough

The City of Stirling has plans for the strategic intensification of mixed urban uses to this old established commercial and industrial dominated area. The Herdsman Glendalough Precinct vision transforms the neighborhoods over time from a car dominated business and highway corridor into an intense and well-connected mixed use precinct, characterised by high amenity for pedestrians, residents and workers served by a transport corridor with light rail.

As part of the structure planning team led by TBB, EPCΛD prepared strategies and guidance for the public realm spaces that will be critical in the precincts transformation. The landscape infrastructure has to be big in scale and robust enough to be meaningful within the built form and scale of streets that structure the Herdsman Glendalough precinct. The proposed urban landscape will provide a hierarchy of street characters, local spaces and civic places that will form a strong and resilient vegetative structure throughout the area.

All landscape elements and spaces will provide more than an aesthetic enhancement. They will contribute to effective environmental management of the urban space by providing integrated urban drainage, cooling shade, nutrient management of run off and local wind speed reduction. The landscape and public realm infrastructure will address the heat sink that is created by the existing large harsh urban and industrial nature of the area.
