Structure Plans

Structure plans (incorporating reports and associated plans/maps) provide a guiding framework for subdivision and development. Structure plans nominate land use arrangements, transport networks, open space systems, utility networks, urban water management land requirements and development standards over an area of land, and where relevant serve to coordinate the provision of land use, community facilities (such as schools, parks and roads), services and infrastructure. Structure plans are particularly important in areas that have fragmented or multiple ownership.
