Other policies in the Growth Plan

The Plan contains more than population and employment forecasts, intensification rate targets, and greenfield area density targets. There are provisions for Urban Growth Centres, major office employment, and environmental protection, among other important matters.

The Urban Growth Centres are a notable element of the Plan, and this report considers them in the context of intensification, because development in the Urban Growth Centres contributes towards meeting the intensification target. However, this report does not analyse the many other elements in the Growth Plan, and is focused on the policies relating directly to land consumption.
