The subregional plan is for the long-term which will shape the growth of the area for future development. It will support a strategy of maintaining a supply of serviced land for development and include consideration of transport and service infrastructure as land capability and environmental values.

The Holtze to Elizabeth River Subregional Land Use Plan will build on the overarching direction provided by the Darwin Regional Land Use Plan (2015) and prepare for change brought about by this population growth.
