    5. DEVELOPMENT INTENT

    In reaction on the status quo and key findings, section 5 proposes the development intent (Vision) and a number of objectives that is supported by specific

    development principles.

    Ikwezi Station Precinct long term vision is to develop an integrated and sustainable transportation node that promotes a quality public realm,

    pedestrian and vehicle friendly movement and economic growth catering for both the first and second economies combined.

    In order to achieve the vision of Ikwezi Precinct the following are objectives that we have to address to realize the Vision:

    Improve pedestrian and vehicular movement within the node

    Stimulate economic growth through land use planning and create long term sustainable jobs

    Provide appropriate infrastructure to support the node

    Create appropriate densities to support the node

    Improve and enhance the environment through proper environmental management practices.

    Create a quality public realm through appropriate open space planning initiatives

    Improve legibility and identity of the precinct area

    Embrace the unique character Ikwezi has as a small scale urban node

    The development principles supporting the above objective are:

    Provide employment,

    Increase income levels of people hence they will be in a better position to support and develop themselves

    Harnessing the creative potential of communities to be more entrepreneurial

    Appropriate infrastructure and services provision

    Transportation will be one of the key mechanisms to ensure that goods and people can be transported and that communities have access to

    opportunities and amenities.

    Open spaces are protected and conserved

    Enhance the residential components by allowing non residential land uses along major routes

    Develop boulevards on existing pedestrian routes

    Provide appropriate hawkers facilities in appropriate locations

    Facilitate easy movement of taxis along Mmila road

    6. DESIGN CONCEPT

    In order for the City to achieve its urban development vision and objectives, and to ultimately observe the expected outcomes, it needs to guide and direct

    the development of the Ikwezi Station Precinct. This Urban Design Framework will assist the City in creating the environment needed to ensure that the

    Ikwezi Precinct will, over the next few years, develop into a vibrant, efficient and sustainable place a place that works. The framework consists of a set of

    proposals that systematically include the following elements:

    The Ikwezi Station Precinct Design Concept aims to basically articulate spaces for the community to perhaps ignite and encourage undertakings of self

    worth and development. In this respect, the concept offers opportunities for the youth, adults and other sections of society. The following have been

    specifically identified:

    Spaces for informal sector trading activities

    Spaces for social, cultural and religious pursuits

    Articulated spaces that connect community areas

    A smoother flow of pedestrian and vehicular (taxi) traffic

    An infusion of inviting aesthetic landscapes

    To realise the above, the planning of the Precinct Design entails the assembly of institutions including Government, Metropolitan local authority, the private

    sector and the community to work in partnerships. The concept is essentially a marriage of the above social-economic and cultural needs with the spatial

    attributes already identified in the earlier part of the report.

    6.1 THE DESIGN CONCEPT

    The principles followed in the framework of the Ikwezi Station Precinct Plan are depicted on Figure 8 overleaf. The concept are described and illustrated

    as follows:
