Residential Development Zone

The objectives of the Residential Development Zone are to:

  1. provide for the coordinated development of future residential areas through the application of a comprehensive plan to guide subdivision and development to be known as a “Structure Plan”
  2. provide for predominantly residential development, but including also a range of compatible services, consistent with the needs of an integrated neighbourhood, and planned so as to minimise adverse impacts on amenity

  3. avoid the development of land for any purposes or at a time when it is likely to compromise development elsewhere in the district or prejudice the future development of land in the Residential Development zone for more appropriate purposes

  4. take account of the need to protect the amenity and on-going use of adjacent property owners as well as to provide for the needs of future residents.
