Structure plans ensure that land development is performed in an orderly manner taking the strategic direction set by the City into consideration.
Where there are multiple land owners, the structure plan developed under the town planning scheme will guide the overall development. All land affected by an approved structure plan must be developed generally in accordance with the plan.
