Special Rural Zone

The objectives of the Special Rural Zone are to:

  1. provide for small rural lot subdivision and development in selected locations to accommodate such uses as hobby farms, horse breeding and training, rural-residential retreats and small-scale intensive horticulture

  2. recognise the environmental characteristics of the landscape, including landform, water resources, remnant vegetation, and native fauna, and to ensure as far as practicable, that these characteristics are not compromised by development and use of the land

  3. encourage the rehabilitation of degraded areas through selected replanting of indigenous flora, and the creation and enhancement of habitat corridors for indigenous fauna.
