Are there any areas of open space not included in the open space calculations?
We have not included landscaped areas on land that is part of a larger site, such as public plazas in town centres, landscaped areas in the University of NSW and other institutional sites, nor have we included the landscaped strips in the middle of Anzac Parade and other roads. We recognise the contribution of these spaces to the open space environment of Randwick, but they are not individually zoned.
