Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the early 1800s, with land used mainly for farming. Land was first subdivided in 1885. The town grew quickly and had its own Council from 1896 to 1948. Significant residential development occurred from the post-war years, aided by public housing construction from the 1950s, and industrial growth from the 1970s. The population fluctuated slightly between 1991 and 2011, a result of small changes in dwelling stock and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
