While the master planning process has not progressed far the council has been worried about what facilities should be in the bigger community. One issue is that the VALP identified 1000 houses now and more to follow over time afterwards. Our concern is that key infrastructure will not be put in place if it is done on a phased/incrementality basis. It will be too easy to say the facilities for a lower initial number of houses can be stretched to accommodate more. We believe a more holistic view is important and therefore we want to see the totality of what is being envisaged.
Consequently we have prepared the attached report and shared it with the DIO and AVDC.
