3. Infrastructure plan


3.1 Purpose

The purpose of this Infrastructure plan is to ensure that the vision is achieved through:

  1. integrating infrastructure planning with land use planning identified in this development scheme;
  2. identifying the infrastructure requirements to be delivered by the local government, state government, water supply and sewer provider or developers, and
  3. providing a basis for imposing conditions on development approvals responding to the increased demand on the relevant infrastructure networks.

The infrastructure plan supplements the outcomes sought by the land use plan. It does not regulate development. The MEDQ may adopt an alternative approach to that outlined in the infrastructure plan where it is appropriate and reasonable to do so.
