320 Arnhem Highway

The Litchfield population is predicted to grow to over 35,000 people by 2046, and Humpty Doo is expected to grow and develop into one of the largest rural activity centres in Litchfield.

Litchfield Council is inviting residents, local businesses, sporting clubs, community groups and interested stakeholders, to participate in a community led consultation to help develop a land use Masterplan for 320 Arnhem Highway, Humpty Doo. At present, 320 Arnhem Highway is 7.56ha of under-utilised Council owned land within the Humpty Doo Activity Centre.

Litchfield Council is encouraging the community to get involved in the consultations and have your say on how you would like to see this site developed in the future. The goal of the consultations is to understand the community’s needs and aspirations for the future of Humpty Doo.

Click here to fill out the survey, responses to the survey will inform Council with information to better understand the community’s aspirations for the future of the site.

Climate Adaptation Strategy & Action Plan 

Climate is sometimes mistaken for weather but is different because it is measured over a long period of time, whereas weather can change from day to day, or from year to year. The climate of an area includes seasonal temperature and rainfall averages, and wind patterns.

Climate change is the long-term change of temperature and typical weather patterns in a place and could refer to a particular location or the planet as a whole.

It may cause weather patterns to be less predictable and has also been connected to other damaging weather events such as more frequent and more intense cyclones, floods, downpours, and winter storms.

The role of human influence on the climate system is supported by extensive scientific evidence, and current and future human actions have the potential to determine the course of climate. 

The purpose of developing a Climate Adaptation Strategy & Plan is to improve the resilience of the local environment, communities, and economies to help withstand the unavoidable impacts of climate change.
