Gilleston Heights Structure Plan

The Gillieston Heights Urban Release Area comprises residential areas, centrally located neighbourhood shops, a potential school site, open space and areas of existing vegetation, which provides a backdrop to the future development. The purpose of the structure plan is to give detailed guidance to people wishing to carry out development within the Gillieston Heights Urban Release Area.

The residential areas are to be developed into a series of neighbourhoods defined by the natural landform, shared pathways and roads. Streets will be designed for safety, connectivity and to provide opportunities for establishing new plantings and attractive streetscapes. Any school, neighbourhood shops and parks will be located adjacent to bus routes and provide a focal point for community activity.
