Profile areas

Settlement history

European settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s, with land used mainly for farming. Population was minimal until 1901 when some growth took place. Substantial development took place during the 1960s and 1970s. The population was relatively stable between 1996 and 2013, a result of few new dwellings being added to the area and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.

Land use

Normandale is an established residential area, with conservation areas in the north and substantial parklands.

Major features
