The Rising Sun masterplan is about balancing living space with leisure and environmental space, retrofitting sustainable infrastructure into this balanced community, and encouraging carbon-neutral lifestyles. The masterplan shows a range of character areas, and neighbourhoods, linked to a community hub. The linkage incorporates public open space in a linear park format, ensuring that people can access facilities by sustainable transport, and also equally important, that each of the neighbourhoods can access a very much enlarged country park adjacent by means of linear parkways.
