Future growth areas - can the growth area just be subdivided into acre blocks?

To provide a diverse range of housing types, some areas of rural living and low density residential will be provided in the growth areas, but the majority of residential development will provide for suburban development.

The growth areas were designated to provide for long-term future growth for the region in the G21 Regional Growth Plan.

State Government policy on planning for growth areas aims to encourage average overall residential densities in the growth areas of a minimum of 15 dwellings per net developable hectare, and over time, seek an overall increase in residential densities to more than 20 dwellings per net developable hectare.
