The National planning framework and planning policy should provide protection for small communities in urban and rural communities when large scale development is considered.

Many small communities start from a disadvantaged position often overlooked in terms of asset and infrastructure. There is often no asset building equity ability within these communities.

When new development starts asset and infrastructure are placed within new development and land banking has already occurred making it difficult for small communities to build asset in the original settlement.
