Alice Springs Regional Land Use Plan 2016
The Alice Springs Regional Land Use Plan 2016 (ASRLUP) provides the long-term strategic framework to anticipate and manage future growth and development for a population of 32 000 and 40 000 people. It investigates the local environment, demographics and economics to set direction for industrial, residential and commercial land uses, the rural areas, conservation areas, community facilities and services, infrastructure, transport and natural resources across the whole of the Alice Springs Municipality.
The ASRLUP is a statutory bearing document in the Northern Territory Planning Scheme.
Key themes emerged around building height; maintaining views to the ranges; quality building design within the CBD; protection of historic and heritage items; energy efficiency of buildings; and continued engagement with all stakeholders.
Implication for the Area Plan
The Area Plan will build from the direction provided by the ASRLUP to reinforce the primacy of the CBD, embracing the unique natural and cultural environment, and utilising the background information to inform the future land use needs within the study area.
