Chapter 17 - Infrastructural Assessment

 

A key consideration in identifying locations for sustainable population growth and new development is the availability and capacity of existing or planned services.  The National Planning Framework (in Appendix 3) sets out a tiered approach for zoning lands (TAZ), as follows:

 

  • Tier 1: Serviced Zoned Land, comprising lands that are able to connect to existing development services for which there is service capacity available and can therefore accommodate new development; and
  • Tier 2: Serviceable Zoned Land, comprising lands that are not currently sufficiently serviced to support new development but have the potential to become fully serviced within the life of the plan.

 

All sites that were undeveloped and within or contiguous to existing settlement boundaries were examined. The suitability of lands were considered on the basis of compact growth, sequential development, connectivity to village/settlement centres, availability (inc. capacity) and access to physical and social infrastructure and environmental considerations such as flood risk, proximity to SACs etc.
