Noonamah Region


The proposed development represents a substantial opportunity to deliver much needed residential expansion of the Greater Darwin Region through a coherent master planned approach. The vision for the proposed residential subdivision is to: Provide a high quality residential estate, providing a range of lot sizes and typologies, with an emphasis on retaining rural character and amenity. The estate will be serviced by a local town centre encouraging cohesion and social amenity, including the provision of land for a new primary school, retail facilities, a community centre and land for new volunteer fire brigades. The development will aim to connect to the surrounding rural area, providing the opportunity to create a strong sense of community. - Development Outline
