Planning controls and development

A major part of the City’s role in Green Square has been to ensure planning controls allow for appropriate growth and development.

Our planning controls seek to provide housing and workplaces for a growing population while ensuring development is sustainable, innovative, and respectful of existing neighbourhoods.

These pages contain key planning documents and information for developers.
