ANNUAL REPORT 202021 | 18 Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre Project status: Ongoing It is important to plan for growth of the Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre in a way that maintains the amenity and lifestyle of the rural area. Humpty Doo is facing many challenges and with them come planning opportunities. These challenges include: meeting housing demand and choice for all stages of life; providing adequate infrastructure services to support growth within the boundaries of the activity centre; and identifying subregional transport connections to Noonamah and Howard Springs. Our focus on planning in the Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre will help maintain the amenity and lifestyle of the rural area, ensuring there are reticulated services available to the growing population, and help protect the rural area from ribbon development. The Planning Commission, in 2018, conducted two stages of community engagement on the Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre Area Plan. It became clear throughout the second stage of engagement that additional consideration of the local and regional road connections, including the Arnhem Highway, was required to progress the development of the area plan. Key considerations are the north to south road connection, how the local roads will intersect with the Arnhem Highway, and how these connections may improve movement north and south of the Arnhem Highway without compromising the existing Humpty Doo commercial centre. The Planning Commission and the Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics, in partnership with Litchfield Council have continued to progress the Arnhem Highway Duplication Planning Study. Once the outcomes of the Arnhem Highway Duplication are known the Planning Commission will incorporate the findings into Stage 2B community engagement on the Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre Area Plan. This is anticipated to commence in the latter half of 2021. Humpty Doo Rural Activity Centre
