PMS 401 PMS Cool Grey 11 PMS 173 Northern Territory Planning Commission | Annual Report 201314 11 Darwin Regional Land Use Plan As Darwins population grows in step with continuing regional development, services will be expanded and business, trade and other opportunities increased, reinforcing the status and important role of the region and city on a national and global front. For Darwin, strategically placed as Australias closest capital city to Asia, high quality regional planning is vital. In July 2013, a Briefing Note was issued seeking feedback from the community on the process, scope and key issues being considered in creating the Darwin Regional Land Use Plan. Community feedback identified: - the importance of a vision for the future - an innovative and resilient economy - sustainability and protection of the Darwin Regions unique environment and lifestyle In December 2013, the Planning Commission released the Towards a Darwin Regional Land Use Plan 2014 document in the next step of developing the Land Use Plan, which presented the Commissions preliminary thinking. This publication canvassed: - infill options to support future land needs, such as Berrimah Farm and Berrimah North, and urban and rural activity centres - proposed greenfield options, including future port facilities at Glyde Point, a regional hospital at Holtze, and development opportunities for Weddell, and Hughes and Noonamah - transport planning including airports, sea ports, rail and arterial roads Nearly 100 submissions were received from individuals, as well as businesses and organisations interested in planning for the growth of the Darwin region well into the future. Feedback from the community will assist the Commission in developing the Draft Darwin Regional Land Use Plan. The Draft Darwin Regional Land Use Plan will be released for public exhibition in July 2014. It is anticipated that the final Darwin Regional Land Use Plan will be submitted to the Minister in October 2014 requesting that the NT Planning Scheme be amended to incorporate the plan as policy. Milestones Achieved - Briefing Note: 25 July 2013 - Towards a Darwin Regional Land Use Plan: 17 December 2013 The Darwin Region continues to be a major focus for the Planning Commission.
