Precinct structure plans - what are they?

Precinct structure plans (PSPs) are master plans for local areas that usually cater for between 5,000 to 30,000 people.

PSPs provide more specific detail regarding how existing important features of local communities such roads, shopping centres, schools, parks, key transport connections and areas for housing and employment may evolve or transform over time and become better integrated.

PSPs will usually be the mechanism for providing direction on any planning zone changes and they will identify the need for new or additional infrastructure to support increased housing and employment, along with funding mechanisms such as council infrastructure contributions charges.
