Location of Example: 153°01'12" East, 27°41'51" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Figure: is an example of the peri-urban zone outside a Built Up Area. This should not be captured as a Built Up Area.
  • A Built Up Area will be representative of all buildings which are set out on street patterns.
  • The boundaries of a Built Up Area should be defined with consideration to the surrounding landscape and location in Australia (e.g. middle of the Northern Territory versus older suburbs in a capital city versus newer suburbs in a fast growing satellite town).
  • In General, Built Up Areas should consist of the majority of land parcels being less than 3600 square metres and man-made structures (e.g pools, homes, garages, etc) should occupy greater than approximately 15 percent of the land parcel.
