17 | NORTHERN TERRITORY PLANNING COMMISSION Planning for Regional Centres Rural Activity Centre Area Plans The Litchfield Subregional Land Use Plan, introduced into the Northern Territory Planning Scheme in July 2016, was a major step towards providing an updated strategic land use framework for the Litchfield area. The subregional plan was a result of extensive consultation with the rural community about the importance of protecting the rural lifestyle, while planning for future population growth in the area. The subregional plan identified four rural activity centres as locations to focus future housing options and to plan for transport and infrastructure services. These rural activity centres are: Howard Springs; Coolalinga/Freds Pass; Humpty Doo; and Berry Springs. The Planning Commission developed, in consultation with the community, the Howard Springs Rural Activity Centre Area Plan, which was included in the NT Planning Scheme in 2018. The Howard Springs Rural Activity Centre Area Plan now helps guide land use change and development in that area. The Planning Commission in 2020-21 continued to focus on the Coolalinga/Freds Pass and Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre Area Plans. Rural Activity Centre Area Plans
