Structure plans and local development plans

Structure plans and local development plans are used to coordinate the subdivision and development of land within identified areas.

Structure plans are a planning document which guides future land use and urban layouts for identified development areas. A structure plan includes details such as road configuration details, lot layouts and the location of retail and community facilities such as shops, schools and public open space. A structure plan can also show details such as housing density, land use classifications and buffer zones. A structure plan can be prepared for a variety of planning purposes, but generally it is done to indicate the way in which an area is proposed for development as well as providing a broad framework to guide Council when it considers subdivision and development proposals.

Local development plans (formerly detailed area plans) are used to guide and coordinate the design and development of small and constrained lots, as well as supplementing development standards contained in the local planning scheme and the Residential Design Codes (R-Codes).

The following structure plans and local development plans have been approved and apply to the development of land within these areas:
