Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the 1880s, although population was minimal until the early 1900s, with land used mainly for farming. Significant development did not occur until the 1970s, with rapid growth through to the 1980s. The population declined slightly between 1996 and 2006, and then was relatively stable between 2006 and 2011, a result of some new dwellings being added to the area, but a decline in dwelling occupancy rates and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
