Lucas Heights Name Origin
Lucas Heights is named after John Lucas Snr, an early landholder.
Lucas Heights Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1820s when the first land grants were made, although population was minimal until the 1850s. Significant development did not occur until the late 1980s. Barden Ridge (the northern part of the area) was primarily developed in the early 1990s. Rapid growth took place during the early 1990s, with the population doubling between 1991 and 1996. Population growth continued from the mid 1990s, although at a much slower rate, a result of fewer new dwellings being added to the area.
