Spring Farm Master Plan

The Spring Farm Master Plan shown at Figure S2-1 identifies a broad subdivision pattern for the area. The overall master plan was prepared with consideration to the State Government’s objective of achieving a target density of 15 dwellings per hectare in new subdivisions. Development applications for subdivision must generally comply with the master plan. Figure S2-2 below demonstrates the basic relationship between the four villages - the Village Centre, main roads, bush corridor and river.
