 A map showing the strategic and local centres within the south district and their respective 800m and 400m walking catchments. The map also shows waterways, protected natural areas, metropolitan rural areas, urban areas and train stations.

The map illustrates the approximate 5–minute walking catchment around local centres serviced by local transport and the approximate 10–minute walking catchment around a centre focussed on a mass transit stop. Actual walking catchments of 5-10 minutes will depend on local connections and conditions and should be determined using a place-based approach within which housing, retail and commercial growth opportunities need to be balanced and planned for by councils.
