Settlement history

Development of the area dates primarily from the 1970s. Rapid growth took place during the 1980s. The population continued to increase substantially between 1991 and 2006 as new dwellings were added to the area. The population was relatively stable between 2006 and 2011, a result of fewer new dwellings being added and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
