Council has prepared a Structure Plan for the area known locally as 'Pennydale' to manage where and how growth will occur in the future.
A structure plan is a long-term plan for a specific location that sets out the vision and planning framework for an area. Structure plans are applied to areas that are already identified as locations for growth to:
Set out where and how this growth and development will occur
Ensure development is located and managed appropriately
Ensure that infrastructure and services will meet the needs of the current and future residents.
You can download the PDF structure plan from the documents section of the community consultation page.
The structure plan is your opportunity to influence what type of development is allowed in the area and also what changes and improvements are needed to ensure it continues to be a great place to live.
As development is expected to occur in this precinct, implementing a structure plan will enable us to introduce planning controls that better reflect the local context of the area and to identify what infrastructure is required to support the population.
Without a structure plan, residents will have limited ability to influence or challenge how development occurs in the future.
