Through design policy advice, review, research and advocacy, McIndoe Urban has been at the forefront of establishing and implementing urban design in New Zealand. This includes authoring significant parts of the first comprehensive set of design guidelines implemented in New Zealand, and significant parts of the documentation set that makes up the New Zealand Urban Design Protocol. Recently the practice planned and facilitated a series of MfE workshops on the ongoing governance of the Urban Design Protocol. MU has written the majority of design guidance for Wellington City Council (Central Area Urban Design Guide, Residential Design Guide, Centres Guide) and developed design policies, standards and guidance for Councils across NZ.
