What is site planning?

Whenever building design or urban design processes start, a site is to be selected, or it is appointed. Site planning is assigning functions to spaces in a site to properly utilise all the resources at disposal. It includes processes of research, analysis and finally, a synthesis of the results found. It includes a detailed study of various aspects like location and neighbourhood context. The zoning of the neighbourhood is crucial as it determines by-laws according to the purpose of the space. The by-laws include the FAR, ground coverage, parking norms, and restrictions. The subsurface features and climate analysis of the location help the design to be climate responsive. Circulation is examined to study important roads and linkages. Availability of utilities is also a factor checked upon under site planning. Along with this, the socio-cultural background study is also done to make the study the population.
