The proposed reforms will simplify planning requirements for animal based farming and will improve the consistency of how the rules are applied. The reforms aim to make the land use planning process clearer for farmers, councils and the community.
The reforms set out in the consultation document will deliver on the following PSAI actions:
Action 3 – Introduce clear land use definitions for animal industries into the Victoria Planning Provisions
Action 4 – Take a graduated approach to planning controls based on risk
Action 12 – Develop clear guidance to improve the quality of planning permit applications, and develop model permit conditions to guide local government.
