Spatial distribution of cars within the neighborhood
|Originally written for Strood Riverside, September 2005||
Each neighborhood is, to a greater or lesser extent, pedestrian at its core. This pedestrian core is essential to the life of the neighborhood.
In order to bring cars into the neighborhood, for parking, convenience, movement, emergency and so on, the cars must be placed in such a way that they do not impinge unduly on the pedestrian center and central zone.
It is a good idea to create a gradient, in the neighborhood, which assigns a probability of cars being present in each ring, this probability being very close to 0% in the central core area, and perhaps close to 100% at the perimter of the neighborhood, with concentric rings of decreasing probability as one passes from outside to inside.
Later plans showing the actual parking positions and roads positions will have to conform to this arithmetic.
