    identify locations suitable for the range of activities and services associated with development in the Shire.

    Objectives – The objectives of this Plan are –

    (a) to contribute to the ecologically sustainable use and development of land and water resources so that the use and development of land is consistent with the principles of sustainable development and avoids or minimises the degradation of the environment or the pollution or over commitment of water resources;

    (b) to protect and promote the use of land identified as having horticultural

    potential; (c) to protect the integrity of areas of environmental and conservation value; (d) to ensure that visually intrusive developments on arterial roads are

    appropriately screened and located to minimise impacts on the efficiency of the road network;

    (e) to create a flexible plan that can accommodate fluctuations in the growth of

    the area; (f) to ensure that development controls reflect the physical and environmental

    capabilities of land and accessibility to services; (g) to ensure that non-residential development is sited to avoid or minimise

    conflict with the residential amenity of adjoining lots; (h) to ensure that lot sizes reflect the capabilities of land in Litchfield Shire; and (i) to identify land for residential, business and industrial development in

    appropriate locations.

    accordance with this Plan. A use or development of land is permitted without the consent of the Authority

    where the use or development is shown as "permitted" in the relevant zoning table and it complies with the provisions of the clauses (if any) specified opposite the use or development in the table.

    PART 3 – ZONE PURPOSE AND TABLES

    5.1 ZONE RR (RURAL RESIDENTIAL)

    Purpose: To provide land for rural residential purposes as a choice for those seeking an alternative to urban living.

    Proposals for rural residential development are expected to demonstrate the relationship of the proposal to existing and proposed future land uses identifying potential impacts on facilities and services and the amenity of the locality. In the event that lots within the zone may not to be sewered, provision for effluent disposal must be made on-site in a manner that will ensure that it will not become a source of pollution to groundwater supplies.

    Clauses that apply to the subdivision of land in the RR zone:

    7.5 Particular requirements relating to Estate Development 11.1 Subdivision lot sizes 11.3 Environmental protection when subdividing 11.4 Particular requirements for RR subdivision

    Clauses that apply to the use and development of land in the RR zone:

    6.5 Setbacks of non-residential uses in the RR and RL1 zones 6.6 Control of demountable structures 6.9 Environmental protection when developing 6.10 Control of excavation and / or fill 7.4 Limitations on development of exclusive rural residential areas 7.7.2 Limitations on the use of caravans 10.2 Control of clearing of native vegetation

    5.2 ZONE RL1 (RURAL LIVING 1) Purpose: To provide opportunities for low-density rural living and a range of rural

    land uses. Subject to consideration of the potential impact of non-residential uses on existing

    and future amenity it can be anticipated that agriculture and horticulture will be amongst the uses likely to establish within the zone. A minimum lot size of 2 ha and control of potentially incompatible land uses will maintain existing amenity in established areas and emphasise the protection of residential amenity in new localities.

    Lots within the zone are unlikely to be sewered; provision for effluent disposal is to be made on-site in a manner which will ensure it will not become a source of pollution to groundwater supplies.

    Purpose: To accommodate commercial activities that because of their nature of business or size of the population catchment require good vehicular access and / or large sites. Service stations, showroom sales, vehicle sales yards and small offices are typical of the uses that may be expected to establish within this zone. Because of the zone’s general relationship with major roads, it is particularly important that development provides for safe and convenient access for vehicles to off-street parking areas and that access points onto roads are located and designed so as to minimise traffic hazards and queuing on those roads.
