Rural Lands Chapter 5

A more holistic strategy for rural lands is required to preserve the distinctive character, values and economic capacity of our rural areas for future generations.

The Rural Lands Chapter explores diversity of land uses competing for rural land resources, and identifies how people are using rural lands.

This Chapter outlines a range of actions to guide rural land use planning and policy across the LGA.

These actions propose how Council can facilitate land use changes, develop evidence and data collection, work with state government and industry groups, and improve communications to assist new and existing rural communities living in rural environments.

The Draft Rural Lands Chapter is currently on public exhibition until 28 February 2019.
