  • Meet increasing demand for additional housing supply and choices with the addition of approximately 1,400 dwellings.
  • Provide development on land that will not significantly impact upon environmentally sensitive land.
  • Provide the opportunity for the protection and adaptive re-use of significant heritage fabric.
  • Create no public infrastructure costs.
  • Contribute to achieving important objectives and directions in Government planning strategies and policies by providing future growth in the North West Subregion.
