@Planning managed the process of obtaining consent approval from the City for a large number of open bus stops in Urban Conservation areas. The aim of the application process was to achieve the sensitive siting of bus stops to ensure that surrounding buildings of heritage significance are not adversely affected. At the same time other technical criteria such as zoning, traffic safety and services infrastructure had to be considered.
