A Structure Plan is, as the name suggests, a plan that illustrates the proposed structure and layout of a future development area.
The preparation of a Structure Plan is one of the first steps in progressing proposals for the development of new urban areas. In addition to illustrating details such as road configuration 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.
