Tactical urbanism projects
Tactical urbanism (also known as DIY urbanism, or guerrilla urbanism) focuses on low-cost, small scale, incremental improvements to neighbourhoods and city gathering places.
These small-scale changes are the first step in realising ongoing and lasting change to the liveability of our city. With a budget of $25,000 to $150,000, neighbourhoods can be refreshed quickly and relatively easily, without having to wait for allocation in a capital budget.
Tactical urbanism can be implemented in two ways:
- as early action arising from a placemaking master plan, allowing quick, short-term changes to be made on the ground, keeping community interest and momentum, as well as testing ideas for future permanent changes
- as low budget, permanent changes in any centre where there is a need for small scale, incremental change.
