Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from 1859, with land used mainly for grazing, farming and orcharding. Gradual growth took place through to the late 1800s. Industrial growth took place in the early 1900s. Significant development occurred in the post-war years, with the eastern area developed in the 1950s and 1960s. The population increased slightly during the 1990s, and then was relatively stable between 2001 and 2006, a result of little change in dwelling stock and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
