“I have been asked by local residents to make available a petition on this planning matter. The text of the petition presented to me by local residents is included below:
Support your councils decision to opt out of the new Agritourism changes, which ignore the lethal combination of bushfires, collapsing roads and alcohol.
Support the current planning processes which allow community members to have a say about development that directly or indirectly impacts them.
Support current prohibited developments like function venues, multiple campers and caravans and excessive visitors remaining prohibited on rural zoned land.
Acknowledge the NSW Department of Planning should not apply a blanket development rule to all of NSW but instead should, once more, allow individual councils to decide what happens in their region.
