Rural Lands Strategy
Council’s Rural Lands Strategy kicked off in February. There were two information sessions held:
- 14 February 2018 10-12pm at the Cootamundra Ex Services Club, and
- 15 February 2018 10-12pm at the Gundagai District Services Club
The purpose of these information sessions were to let people know what’s going on and to gauge whether we have missed anything before we get started.
Everything was on the table, from broad acre cropping, market gardens, lavender farms, heritage chicken breeding, farm stays and so on.
So if you have an interest in farming or permaculture, Council wants to hear from you. While this is a land use strategy, it isn’t just about zoning and development approvals, it’s about starting a conversation and sharing ideas on how to diversify existing farm enterprises and encourage startups.
Please contact Council with any ideas on 1300 459 689 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please watch this space for futher updates.
