4.2 Planning assumptions

(1) The planning assumptions state the assumptions about:
(a) population and employment growth;
(b) the type, scale, location and timing of development including the demand for each trunk infrastructure network.
(2) The planning assumptions together with the desired standards of service form a basis for the planning of the trunk infrastructure networks and the determination of the priority infrastructure area.
(3) The planning assumptions have been prepared for:
(a) the base date (2016) and the following projection years to accord with future Australian Bureau of Statistics census years:
(i) mid 2016;
(ii) mid 2021;
(iii) mid 2026;
(iv) mid 2031;
(v) beyond mid 2031 (ultimate development).
(b) the LGIP development types in column 2 that include the uses in column 3 of Table 4.2.1;
(c) the projection areas identified on Map A2 Priority Infrastructure Area and Projection Areas in Schedule 3—Local government infrastructure plan mapping and tables.

Column 1
LGIP development category
Column 2
LGIP development type
Column 3
Uses
Private residential development
Dwelling house
Multiple dwelling
Other residential development
Non-private dwelling

Note—Other residential development refers to development that accommodates permanent residents in non-private dwellings.

Non-residential development
Retail
Commercial
Industrial
Community purpose
Other
Mobile worker
Note—There is no planning scheme use definition for mobile workers. Mobile workers include workers that have no fixed place of work e.g. construction workers.
(4) Details of the methodology used to prepare the planning assumptions are stated in the extrinsic material.

4.2.1 Population and employment growth

(1) A summary of the assumptions about population and employment growth for the planning scheme area is stated in Table 4.2.1.1.
