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.

Average population growth in this subregion is expected to continue at approximately 2.5% p.a. 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.

  • Identifies the need to ensure that there is infrastructure to support the projected increase in population including areas earmarked for residential and rural living opportunities.
  • Identifies the need to transition land uses and lot sizes between existing and new development, protect the rural amenity of residents.
  • Opportunities to protect the environmental and recreational values of the region, including the pine forest at Howard Springs North.
