- provides transparency regarding Council’s intentions for the provision of trunk infrastructure for the Region;
- enables Council to estimate the cost of infrastructure provision to assist its long term financial planning;

The LGIP identifies trunk infrastructure plans for the following five networks that provide essential services for development:
