The Highbury Report

In 1985, the Integrated Design Studio (later to become the Community design Studio) was approached by the Birkenhead Business Association to develop design and development guidelines for the village of Highbury on the North Shore. The problem was to develop a design and development proposal for the township that would preserve its village character while at the same time stimulating investment and growth. The ensuing study took three months and  critically analysed the history and topography of the area, its relationship to other commercial centres on the North Shore, and the potential for unique development. Instead of proposing a "Master plan, the final 76 page report outlined six principles to guide future development:

  • The principle of organic order

  • The principle of participation

  • The principle of guidelines

  • The principle of piecemeal growth
  • The principle of diagnosis

  • The principle of co-ordination.

These principles were supplemented by 43 specific design and development guidelines. Folloiwing its submission, the Report was adopted by the Business association, and within two years, the Highbury commercial centre had "taken off". It is now one of the mkost vital and intensively developed commercial areas of the North Shore City.

A downloadable PDF of this study will be available here soon.
