Berrimah Farm Area Plan 2014

The site is currently a research facility for practices in agriculture, horticulture and cattle breeding. After investigations into a higher and better use for the site, the Planning Commission prepared a Berrimah Farm Area Plan.

The Berrimah Farm Area Plan caters for:

  • residential uses 
  • a multi user research precinct 
  • community and education facilities 

The mixed use proposal preserves existing facilities at the Berrimah Research Farm and acknowledges the existing road network in providing a precinct to cater for a multiuser facility comprising both government and private sector based research.

Education and aged care facilities will also cater for future population growth.

The Berrimah Farm Area Plan was exhibited as a proposed Planning Scheme Amendment in May 2014 and introduced in October 2014 in Part 8, Clause 14.1.4.
