Rural Lands Review

Elton Consulting have been engaged by Council to undertake a review of rural lands across the LGA.

The aim of the Rural Lands Review is to identify and address the various pressures and associated impacts on traditional farming, rural communities, rural environments and related industry to meet the needs of the economy, the community and the environment into the future.

This review is being undertaken over a number phases. Phase 1 of the project has been completed and comprised the preparation of a Background Paper, facilitation of Community Engagement Workshops and the preparation of an Issues and Options Paper.

Council, at its Ordinary Meeting of 27 April 2017, resolved to appoint three community representatives  and two Councillors to a Section 355 Agricultural Advisory Committee. The purpose of this committee is to oversee Phase 2 of the project.

Elton Consulting has been engaged by Council to undertake Phase 2 of the project which will comprise the preparation of a Draft Policy Paper that provides a response  to the issues and options identified during Phase 1 on the Project.

Phase 2 of this project will also comprise additional community engagement processes and preparation of a draft Rural Lands Review document. Interested community members can find out more and keep up to date about Phase 2 of the Rural Lands Review here.

It is anticipated that a draft document will be placed on exhibition in the coming months concurrent with a draft chapter on Residential Lands prepared as part of the Residential Lands Review Project.
