General Rural Zone

The objectives of the General Rural Zone are to:

  1. facilitate the use and development of land for a range of productive rural activities, which will contribute towards the economic base of the region

  2. provide for a limited range of compatible support services to meet the needs of the rural community, but which will not prejudice the development of land elsewhere which is specifically zoned for such development

  3. ensure the use and development of land does not prejudice rural amenities, and to promote the enhancement of rural character

  4. ensure that development and land management are sustainable with reference to the capability of land and the natural resource values.
