3.11 Land Use, Ownership and Zoning
Linbro is largely peri-urban in character - an area in transition from rural to urban, and contains some 228 agricultural smallholdings that range in size from around 1-2+ hectares, which are used primarily for residential and some business purposes.
There are several equestrian facilities in the area with local community services, such as schools, crèche, a library, post boxes and a tennis club.
There is a variety of business uses conducted from some smallholdings such as; nurseries, builders yards, transportation, guest houses, party farmyard – typical of an area in transition.
There are around 30 vacant and undeveloped properties, totaling some 50Ha, of which four are government owned. Some properties are derelict and in a state of disrepair.
Linbro is predominately privately owned with most sites zoned agricultural.
Establishing new rights for development would require a township establishment process for each site.
