Plan highlights

The Newstead North Neighbourhood Plan seeks to:

  • promote economic development by supporting low-impact industry that provides services for inner-city residents and businesses
  • encourage creative industries such as artists, designers and local manufacturers, including allowing people to live at their workplace in some circumstances
  • facilitate mixed-use development in areas adjacent to the industry zone, allowing for a mix of uses such as offices, service industry, shops and cafes
  • protect character houses and heritage places in the area, particularly on Montpelier Hill 
  • encourage high-quality design, well-designed urban environments and improved pedestrian connectivity through new development.
