Proposed Planning scheme policy for agricultural buffers

Business lady examining documents web

Council is proposing an amendment to the Bundaberg Regional Council Planning Scheme which seeks to incorporate a Planning scheme policy for agricultural buffers. 

The proposed amendment is available for public consultation from Friday, 11 September 2020 to Tuesday, 13 October 2020.

The purpose of the Planning scheme policy is to:

  • provide guidance for the design, construction and ongoing maintenance of agricultural buffers to minimise conflicts between agricultural operations and sensitive land uses (e.g. residential uses and urban development);
  • inform the design of new residential development proposed adjacent to agricultural land uses in order to limit impact on lawful agricultural operations;
  • provide appropriate design considerations and maintenance advice to ensure buffers are effective in mitigating off-farm impacts adjacent to sensitive land uses; and
  • support applicants in satisfying the requirements of the planning scheme, and to assist development assessment officers in their assessment of new development applications that require agricultural buffers.

The proposed amendment and supporting material are available for download below:

A copy of the proposed amendment and supporting material are available for inspection and purchase at Council’s Development counter at Level 6, Auswide Building, 16-20 Barolin Street, Bundaberg.
