Guidelines for Human Settlement Planning and Design

This document provides guidance on appropriate practices and technologies. Emphasis isplaced on assessing “performance” (in relation to issues like health, safety, recreation, education and trade) as opposed to simply assessing the quantitative dimensions of the plan to ensure some form of compliance with stated norms. Various national and provincial government departments, statutory bodies and local authorities may also have their own sets of guidelines for use by planners and engineers. It is not the intention of this document to take the place of these other guidelines. Rather, the Red Book should be considered as being supplementary to them, because local conditions and experiences can often dictate what procedure should be followed in specific cases.
