Low Density Residential Zone
The Low Density Residential Zones review was also conducted as part of the Housing Strategy, to assess how the LDRZ land will fit within Casey’s housing stock as a whole. Total of twenty precincts were previously identified and each precinct was reviewed through an assessment criterion.
Findings from the Housing Market Assessment suggested that there was ongoing demand for ‘rural lifestyle’ and that the supply of such lots should be increased if possible. However, due to bushfire risk, landscape impact, drainage capacity, aboriginal cultural heritage, accessibility to services, infrastructure limitations, agency concerns and flooding issues, not all land in LDRZ will be suitable for further subdivision. It is recommended LDRZ areas should be retained at 0.4 hectares except for Precincts 7, 8, 17 and 18 where the minimum subdivision should be reduced to 0.2 hectares.
