Precinct Structure Plan

The Botanic Ridge Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) provides guidance for the development and long-term growth of land within the Botanic Ridge Precinct. The Future Urban Structure Plan below demonstrates how each stage of the precinct will be developed over time. It identifies land set aside for a variety of uses, including residential, employment, schools and community facilities.

Native Vegetation Precinct Plan

The Botanic Ridge Native Vegetation PrecinctPlan also applies to the Stage 2 & 3 Botanic Ridge plan area.  The plan aims to protect and manage the long term health and habitat value of native vegetation and allow for passive recreation on the edge of habitat and conservation areas.
