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

Noonamah Ridge Estate 4.4.3 Mitigation Detail preventative and management strategies used to minimise the potential impacts of the Project on the regional supply of electricity. In particular, provide details of the following for all stages of the Project: measures to safeguard electricity supply including during extreme weather events contingency measures for maintaining supply of electricity during times of high demand. Measures should include options for minimising energy use and a strategy for achieving energy efficiency ratings required under Department of Lands, Planning and the Environment Building Advisory Services Energy Efficiency Requirements (available at http://www.lands.nt.gov.au/building/energy). Water 4.5 4.5.1 Environmental objectives To maintain equitable, sustainable and efficient use of water resources. To ensure that water supplies are maintained and current lawful users of water (such as entitlement holders and stock and domestic users) and other beneficial uses of water (such as spring flows and groundwater-dependent ecosystems) are not adversely impacted by the development. To ensure that surface water and groundwater resources and quality are protected both now and in the future, such that ecological health and land uses, and the health, welfare and amenity of people are maintained. To protect and improve waterway health by maintaining or restoring the natural hydrological regime. To minimise the impacts of stormwater on ecosystem health, flooding and drainage control, public health and safety, the economy, recreational opportunities and aesthetic values in the region. 4.5.2 Assessment of risks The EIS should assess risks to existing regional water resources as a result of construction and occupancy of the Project. Potable water The EIS should include a comprehensive assessment of the risks to relevant potable water resources, at an appropriate spatial scale, associated with the potable water servicing supply strategy for each stage of the Project. In particular, the EIS should identify and assess the risks to: current domestic, agricultural or ecological users of potable water resources that will be used to service the Project the long-term sustainability of potable water resources (groundwater, town mains etc.) that will be used to service the Project at full occupancy aquifer recharge from the potential reduction in infiltration to groundwater from an increase in urbanised area. The risk assessment should include an assessment of cumulative impacts to regional potable water resources from developments that are being constructed, are proposed or flagged for future development in the region with respect to the availability and sustainability of potable water resources.
