Event description

Description

On 27 June 2018, the Minister for Agriculture, the Hon Jaala Pulford, announced significant reforms to Victoria's planning system for animal industries.

The reforms introduce new land use definitions and planning controls for animal industries into the Victoria Planning Provisions and all planning schemes in Victoria. These changes will provide farmers with greater flexibility to manage their farms and enable them to better manage seasonal conditions and capture market opportunities. The reforms also introduce a simplified planning process to support outdoor pig and poultry farms that operate with low environmental and amenity risks.

In July-August, 11 information sessions will be held across the state to help people understand the reforms. These sessions will suit planning professionals, local government, farmers and interested community members. Please 'Resigter' for the session you are interested in.

A summary of the reforms can be found at agriculture.vic.gov.au/planning-animal-industries.

If you have further queries about the information sessions, please email psai@ecodev.vic.gov.au.
