When it comes to Kyneton on Riverside, one of the main objectives of
the development planners who envisioned this neighbourhood were to
deliver not only a place to live but to provide residents with the
tools and environment to live a better life. The quality of life within a
community is affected by many factors and the KOR team was determined
to get them right, which is why renowned town planners Robert’s Day
joined the team.

Why Robert’s Day?

A company with over 20 years of experience in delivering integrated
place, planning, design and architecture services. RD is celebrated for
its ability to transform a client’s vision into commercially
successful, celebrated and moreover- meaningful spaces. The aspect of
their methodology which resounded with the values and vision of KOR was
an emphasis on well-being when planning communities. This development
set out to deliver more than lots of lands; it was designed to house the
kind of lives its residents had always longed for. The role of Robert’s
Day was to help KOR achieve this result.

The Outcomes

Roberts Day recognised that Kyneton
on Riverside represents a celebration of a bygone era within a modern
lifestyle. With that in mind, the planners set out to retain a historic
character that is distinct to this town, while introducing elements that
make the destination more attractive for small businesses and community
activities. By bringing these to the town, the well-being of the average
Kyneton residents would be positively affected.

Landscaping and Design

Quality landscaping,
building and home designs with historical influences and retention of
the natural beauty of the rural environment all contribute to creating a
sense of town character. The design of the town is a nod to its gold
rush days, with clear community hubs and meeting places emerging, while
also expanding the community to include suburban-style housing.
Residents also have access to quality open spaces, walking trails and
amenities that encourage outdoor activity and overall well-being.


The well-being of a community (and
the world in general) is closely related to its relationship with the
environment. Sustainable living not only protects the natural
environment around us, but it also has positive effects on our own
health and well-being. Robert’s Day incorporated important aspects such
as natural retention and rehabilitation, sustainable housing and
recycled material into this town plan.


In order to flourish and thrive, this community must
strive towards economic prosperity. This has been addressed by KOR and
RD in the form of designated commercial areas, a range of mixed-use
facilities and land areas that allow for retail and business incubation.
In addition, the plan to improve public transport access will
significantly impact Kyneton’s attractiveness as a place of trade,
whether it is at the Farmer’s Market or a local IT business.
