PMS 401 PMS Cool Grey 11 PMS 173 Northern Territory Planning Commission | Annual Report 201314 13 In June 2013, a Discussion Paper was released for public comment. Land Use Forums were conducted in August 2013 with residents and stakeholders. Details on the community consultation methods and process can be found at page 22. In October 2013, the Planning Commission determined that due to the impact of further growth on stormwater run-off and flooding, the current land uses for Knuckey and Ironstone Lagoons, the area east of Vanderlin Drive, should be retained. However, the Planning Commission proceeded to develop an Area Plan for Berrimah North, the area west of Vanderlin Drive. The locality offers the opportunity of commercial and light industrial development, employment and residential expansion adjacent to transport infrastructure, and is strategically placed between the regions principal activity centres. An Area Plan would also coordinate the delivery of infrastructure as Berrimah North develops. To inform the Berrimah North Area Plan, a traffic impact assessment was commissioned to determine access points and assess options for the internal road network. A stormwater strategy to manage surface water drainage was also being developed in partnership with the City of Darwin. The Planning Commission will present the Berrimah North Area Plan to the Minister in August 2014.
