Title: 27. Cape Liptrap

This table top sedimentary unit is a patch work of pasture and native bushland. The Cape Liptrap lighthouse provides the key focal point with scattered development generally tucked into the treed plateau top. The setting type falls dramatically to the sea with dense shrub cover. The cliff edge is particularly exposed and development should be held back from this location.

Spectacular views are gained from almost every position in the landscape setting type, particularly along coastal cliffs.

Special Considerations

  • The cliff escarpment and ridgeline areas should not be developed. Inland from these locations there is considerable scope for clustering development.
  • The setting type is of outstanding scenic quality with a number of heritage sites and requires appropriate planning controls to protect this significant landscape.
